Did you know?

This isn’t the first time that dinosaurs have been to Peterborough, as a rare plesiosaur skeleton was discovered buried beneath a fenland quarry in Must Farm in November 2014.

An archeologist from the Oxford Clay Working Group, Dr Carl Harrington, noticed a tiny bone fragment sticking out of the clay in an archeological dig. This led to a four day dedicated dig involving 9 archeologists. At the end over 600 fossilised bone fragments were discovered, and the team spent over 400 hours cleaning and reconstructing the dinosaur.

When she was finished, the newly-discovered plesiosaur was named Eve and became a starry feature at the Oxford University Museum of Natural History. You can read more about this discovery here.
