I had the pleasure of meeting palaeontologist Steve Brusatte and his class at Edinburgh University King’s Buildings this month to lean about dinosaurs!

During the visit we discussed science funding policy, and was shown some of the incredible fossils that the team are working on. Steve and his class do work around the world, digging up dinosaurs and studying them to understand how the earth has changed over time. Some of our most interesting work is on Skye, the only place in Scotland where you can find dinosaurs. 

The best part of the visit was being able to hold some of the fossils and dinosaur bones!
