The American Colonies were expected to help repay debt that had accrued during the French and Indian War.
Along with their collection of insects to look at under microscopes we had our own collection of small fossils to view.
This was a whole-school day and the organizers estimated about pupils attended the event. With teaching staff, helpers and organizers the estimate was about people on site during the day.
Also inside the house were Timetaxi. We thank the Geological Society of London for providing a grant to pay for a wide-format pop-up projection screen which was used throughout the week to project images from our high-definition microscope.
An early morning start at Dinosaur Isle Museum saw the Landrover loaded up with a model dinosaur which had to be taken apart first and various small and very large and heavy fossils.
This was taken by car-ferry to Hampshire. Stopping off first at the University of Portsmouth to collect some more large fossils we then drove on to the installation in the Cathedral. The first job was to get as near as possible to the building in order to off-load the vehicle.
Having identified a suitable location near the arches of the ambulatory we began constructing the dinosaur, then adding the fossils and their interpretation. The picture above shows part of the installation. Thanks go to Dr David Loydell of the University of Portsmouth for the loan of additional fossils, and to the vergers team for help with setting up the display.
Pictured below are some of the heavier fossils on the steps and floor, including fossils from the University and a large dinosaur leg bone from Dinosaur Isle Museum. Fearsome Isle of Wight Dinosaur on tour - 27th July A dinosaur found on the Isle of Wight has travelled 6, miles across the world as part of a special exhibition in Japan.
The showcase - which includes specimens of feathered dinosaurs from China - opened on 13 July and will run until the end of October. It is a terrific opportunity for Dinosaur Isle Museum to extend its partnerships and give us the chance to discuss future collaborations.
The model was the result of 3D imaging of the original specimen which took place at Dinosaur Isle Museum, earlier this year. A painted scene from the Isle of Wight, million years ago, features at the entrance to the exhibition and on promotional posters.
The exhibition is sponsored by media company Yomiuri Shimbun, the biggest media group in Japan. Fossil remains of the apex predator Neovenator were first discovered on the Island in the 20th century.
The dinosaur could have existed alongside other dinosaurs found in the Wessex Formation of the early Cretaceous period, million years ago such as Baryonyx, Polacanthus and Iguanodon.
The bones were mixed with those of the plant-eater Mantellisaurus. The dig site also contained remains of fish, amphibians, lizards, pterosaurs and Goniopholididae — a type of early crocodile.
For more information on Neovenator click here. This year the weather was just right and we were able to set ourselves up in the field. The organisers reported that there were visitors on the day.
Dinosaur Isle's stand attracted a number of children and their friends who took a liking to our cuddly dinosaurs, handled some of our fossils, and tried out the big-wheeled buggy we use to get children out to the beach and other places that a conventional wheelchair cannot reach.
The Short Breaks Show enables us to reach a number of children who find it difficult to get to venues, but who are mad about all things dinosaur. Dinosaur tooth found on Dinosaur Isle fossil walk - 23rd July The first guided fossil walk of our school summer holiday programme started today with spectacular results.
A visiting French family found the tip of a theropod dinosaur tooth at Yaverland, on a walk led by one of the staff of the museum. This is a rare find for this location, so we are particularly pleased. There wasn't enough of the tooth to be able to give a clear identification of the species, but it was from a group of meat-eating dinosaurs similar to Neovenator, a predatory dinosaur similar to Allosaurus.
Please bring suitable footwear, cameras and hand lenses. Dinosaur footprint found on school trip - 21st June During June we take a number of visiting mainland schools to see the fossils at our local beach at Yaverland.Cultural Differences between Australia and England.
