The Museum's fossil collection is world-renowned and includes not only famous dinosaurs but also plants, marine reptiles and Ice Age mammals, to name a few.
These collections are essential in helping scientists reconstruct and understand what life on Earth was like millions of years ago. But how does a fossil get from under the ground to on display in the gallery?
Meet Fossil Preparator Mark Graham who will share the different ways he prepares fossils for both research and display, and see some of the specimens he has worked on.
