Public Lecture - 'Dinosaurs: Changing views in the last 200 years'

'Dinosaurs: Changing views in the last 200 years’ was our Megalosaurus Month Public Lecture, delivered by Professor Michael Benton OBE. This was our most popular Public Lecture to date, with over 500 registrations. 

Professor Michael Benton is a palaeontologist who studies dinosaurs and mass extinctions. One of his great discoveries was to kick off a new field of research in determining the colour of dinosaurs. He was awarded an OBE in 2021 for his work in the public understanding of science and was elected Fellow of the Royal Society in 2014 for his fundamental contributions to understanding the history of life. He is fascinated by the transformation of palaeobiology from a speculative subject to testable science and led one of these discoveries – how to determine the colour of dinosaurs, rated as one of the top scientific discoveries of the 2010s. 

It was fantastic to have Professor Benton's expertise form part of Megalosaurus Month and captivate such a large audience!
