Some outreach

A couple of months ago I was lucky enough to be invited to give a second talk at the Royal Institution in London. It was, perhaps inevitably, on tyrannosaurs but if you want to hear an hour of me talking about them then the video is now up on YouTube here. As a bonus, they also filmed the Q&A afterwards so there’s an extra 20 mins of me droning on here.

If that’s still not enough of me for you (and it’s hard to imagine that it’s not actually too much for most people), I’m also doing some talks on the 29th of September as part of thy exhibition of Chinese dinosaurs in Nottingham. Keep your eyes peeled for details later. I’m also currently heavily involved in a secret dinosaur project which should be on your screens this Christmas (in the UK at least).

    Fabulous lecture, Dave.

    Loved the use of lots of specimens and photographs to illustrate your points.

    While I’ve read your book and follow t.rex research closely I still learned a lot that I can share with AMNH visitors in my job as a “Fossil Expaliner,”

    Brilliant science communication. Put the link up on my Fezbok and the mums have started sharing it (school holiday time in Australia at the moment). Fav fact from the lecture was about the eyeballs. Is that for land animals only or everything?

      It is certainly the case for land animals, though giant squid have much, much larger eyes (as did many ichthyosaurs) so at the marine stuff is well ahead.

    I don’t believe I’ve listened to one of your lectures before. That was excellent!
