Scientists have digitally reconstructed the scene of a dinosaur chase - preserved in the mud of an ancient river bed in Texas. The tracks were left by two dinosaurs more than 110 million years ago
. Seventy years ago, the whole trackway was removed from the river bed and divided into blocks, which were moved to different locations for study.More details can be found here and here.
Is anyone interested in this collection? It is currently contained in more than 30 large drawers, meticulously indexed and labelled and covers a wide variety of rock and mineral samples and a multitude of fossil specimens, mainly from the South West of England. Please contact Greg for further details

After this evening's Bath Geological lecture at the BRLSI in Queens Square, Bath, it was discovered that some beautiful fossils were missing
. These specimens are brought to the meetings and displayed at the back for everyone to enjoy. It can only be assumed that someone thought they were there as 'help yourself'. They were not so please return them. They can be left anonymously at BRLSI with a label 'for Bath Geological Society'.
If anyone has any idea what has happened to these carefully and painstakingly prepared fossils, please contact the Secretary.
