In school: Dinosaurs in your classroom

This Dinosaurs in your Classroom hands-on workshop explores the work of  palaeontologists and the discovery of Britain’s oldest dinosaur, Thecodontosaurus antiquus, that walked where Bristol is now 210 million years ago.

Children will:

  • Find out what a palaeontologist does.
  • Excavate and study fossils from the time of the dinosaurs
  • Discover where dinosaurs and prehistoric reptiles lived and what they ate
  • Rebuild Thecodontosaurus antiquus – the Bristol dinosaur, and study dinosaur bones
