Product description


Here is a work destined to be of great historical importance in the field of paleontology...There have been no comparably detailed exegeses on the history of a single excavation. Earth Sciences History


This is an illustrated study of the excavation of Seismosaurus hallorum, one of the longest and heaviest dinosaurs ever discovered. The author, the State Palaeontologist of Utah, USA, weaves his tale of discovery with anecdotes and descriptive chapters on the technical aspects of the excavation. Part adventure narrative, the story moves from the excavation site in 1985, to current advances in research, and back to the prehistoric age, as the author describes the anatomy, behavioural characteristics and habitat of this enormous dinosaur. It also explores the collaboration which existed between palaeontologists, archaeologists and the chemists and physicists who helped to reconstruct the dinosaur's life.
