Discovering dinosaurs on Victoria’s smaller Island.  Dr Martin Munt Dinosaur Isle

For over 50 years in the nineteenth century the Isle of Wight was at the forefront of new dinosaur discoveries in the World. Richard Owen filled his monographs with Isle of Wight fossils, Huxley was highly influenced by the discovery of Hypsilophodon in his theory of the relationship between birds and dinosaurs. It was only the opening up of the American West that eclipsed the Island’s dinosaurs.
