The Colours of Dinosaurs and other Ancient Beasts – Maria McNamara – Sunday 25th October – 2.00pm – Marine Theatre

The colours of dinosaurs and other ancient beasts: what we know from new cutting-edge science.

Over the last 12 years there has been an explosion of interest in the colours of fossil animals. Palaeobiologists can now use traces of chemicals and fragments of preserved tissue as evidence for colour reconstructions. The latest research even hints at ancient hidden functions of colour and lead to new research directions in environmental science and human health.
