The Jurassic

Fossil
Did you know what that fossil was?


The specimen you clicked on was the fossilised footprint of the meat-eating dinosaur Megalosaurus pictured on the right. These footprints were found in a quarry at Ardley near Oxford and are probably about 168 million years old.

Why not visit the Museum and see the trackway of Megalosaurus footprints that run across our front lawn?
