At the Dinosaur Isle stand, you’ll be able to handle objects, maps and diagrams of Isle of Wight, fossils and dinosaurs, will include a life-size dinosaur model, and first chance to meet a new hand-held dinosaur puppet! Visitors to our display will be able to handle real dinosaur bones and fossils from the richest dinosaur locality in Europe.
This year Dinosaur Isle Museum are joined by Fossil Festival stalwarts Alison and David Ward. David is a world authority on fossil sharks. Alison and David will run an activity on how to recognise the relationships between fossil and living sharks from their teeth and jaws. There will be a good chance to win your very own fossil shark’s tooth.
