Description

Dinosaurs have always captured the imagination like no other animal on Earth, and this encylopaedia aims to recreate their prehistoric lives. Arranged chronologically, it contains information about how we can interprete fossil finds which tell us about many aspects of this distant past. Two sections introduce the reader to the world of the dinosaurs, discussing how life on Earth began and how animals evolved, as well as how we know about the dinosaurs from the work of paleontologists and geologists.show more
