Dinosaur skeleton to be rebuilt





Dinosaur bones which have been entombed in rock for more than 210 million years are to finally be extracted and constructed into a complete skeleton.

The rocks containing the fossilised remains of the Thecondontosaurus Antiquus were found in a quarry in South Gloucestershire in the 1970s.

Scientists at the University of Bristol are planning to remove the rock to reveal the bones within.

The project was made possible by a £295,000 Heritage Lottery Fund grant.
