Dinosaur skeleton to be assembled (UK)





Researchers at an Isle of Wight museum have begun the painstaking process of assembling an almost complete 30ft (9m) dinosaur skeleton, the BBC can reveal.

Visitors to the Dinosaur Isle Museum will be able watch experts build the vertebra of an Iguanodon, which roamed the earth 130 million years ago.

It was uncovered over several years by fossil hunter Nick Chase, who then donated it to the Sandown museum.

Work on the skeleton, known as "Big Iggy", is due to take at least a year.
