Dinosaurs: Myth and Reality

Speaker:  Vicky Coules

Dinosaurs are as popular today as they have ever been – so much so, a new dinosaur discovery usually makes the national news.  Images of dinosaurs are everywhere – but how realistic are these images?  What do dinosaurs really look like?  And how do we know?  This talk explores the visualisation of dinosaurs from the first discoveries to today, how they have changed and how new science is revealing more about the reality of these extinct creatures and the lives that they led than we had ever thought possible.

Vicky Coules is an artist and writer currently researching for a PhD across the Departments of Art History and Palaeontology at the University of Bristol.
