The Isle of Wight boasts the most prolific dinosaur bearing strata in Europe and during the Victorian era played a pivitol role in the invention of dinosaurs. This talk explores the early history of the Island’s Victorian ‘bone’ collectors, their successes, failures, eccentricities and rivalries. We will also look at the highlights of the Isle of Wight’s important contribution to the science over the last two centuries, bringing us to the present-day high-tech renaissance in dinosaur research.

There are 100 places available at this Zoom event, please contact Gillian Burnett of the IW Historical Association to book your place.

Please note: this talk is open to IWNHAS Members and IW Historical Association Members. The talk starts at 7:30pm, but you must log-in to the Zoom Session before the start of the talk, there will be no admittance once the talk has begun.
