So today I got ot see two of the coolest things ever! A mummified Dodo head and a Megalosaurus jaw, not just any jaw but the jaw that led to a new genus being created which later became dinosaurs. So the first dinosaur fossil!
Both pieces are in the Millennium Centre in Cardiff Bay for anyone to see, there’s one case either side of the ticket desk. They’ll be there I think tomorrow and then I’m not sure about the weekend but they’re definitely gone by Monday. The cases are filled with lots of other amazing objects and they are a collaboration between Amgueddfa Cymru or National Museum of Wales and the Museum of Natural History Oxford. There is currently a big natural science museums conference happening this week, unfortunately you need a ticket for that, but the display cases are just there for you to oooh and ahhh over 🙂
If you can go check them out!
If not, well here’s some pics I took on my phone 🙂
