Introduction

Welcome to Palaeontologist’s Perspective. In this video I explain my motivation for creating this miniseries.

Palaeontology has more public attention than ever, but fast-paced clickbait media means that the science is sometimes left behind in favour of fiercer, faster, bigger dinosaurs. This miniseries gives an insider’s view of palaeontology, looking at the process of digging a dinosaur, the lives we lead in camp, and how and why we do our research.
