DYNAMITE FOR DINOSAURS

November 2007

Nature magazine article about a palaeontology project in Alaska, where they are blasting out hadrosaur bones from underneath the permafrost – a bit different from the normal image of people using paintbrushes under a baking desert sun… Mind you, they do end up with paintbrushes in the end.

You or your institution will need a subscription to see the page, but you can watch this video about the expedition for free.
