During February 2024, the Society will host an unusual visitor in the Upper Library at Burlington House
A life-sized replica of a skeleton of a Megalosaurus will be the centrepiece of celebrations marking the 200th anniversary of the first scientific description of a dinosaur. The paper “Notice on the Megalosaurus or great Fossil Lizard of Stonesfield” by the Reverend William Buckland [1784–1856] was presented at a meeting of the Geological Society on 20 February 1824.
The Megalosaurus Month Festival will run from 12–29 February, and includes an ambitious programme of events including drawing classes, lectures, family activities and school visits.
