Local Dinosaurs in the News

The Peace Country seems always to have something to contribute to the study of dinosaurs these days.  Check out these two articles:

First, the Philip J. Currie Dinosaur Museum in Wembley, near the Pipestone Creek Pachyrhinosaurus bone bed was chosen by Azure Magazine as one of the Top 10 Projects to Follow in 2014.  This means that the museum is expected to be architecturally innovative as well as a game-changer for the community.  Follow the link.  To see the local response, click here.

Second, a discovery last year of a duck-billed dinosaur’s exceptionally well-fossilized remains has proven to be particularly enlightening for palaeontologists because soft tissue was also preserved.  You might have seen a post about the Edmontosaurus regalis on this blog back in December; this is a link to another article from the University of Alberta where the fossil is being studied.

Thanks to Nonny Moose for sending these links!  If you have an idea for a post, please let it be known.  Email townspirit@hotmail.com or leave a comment on any post.  Your submissions are much appreciated!

  1. Wembley hits the big times with its big creatures of the past! That’s amazing to think they walked where we walk today. I always used to think that dinosaurs lived in some other faraway, exotic place, but not right HERE among us, except for “time.”

      Hey, that is how most people think of dinosaurs, isn’t it? Still true, since dinosaurs are found all over the world 🙂 Maybe Wembley is pretty exotic to someone looking in from China or Australia.
