Dinosaurs in Crystal Palace Park
Tuesday 4 June, Museum of London
Prof Joe Cain (UCL Science and Technology Studies)
The famous ‘monsters’ in Crystal Palace have been on display since the park opened in 1854. These are the first life-sized three-dimensional sculptures of dinosaurs and other prehistoric beasts, but there is a lot more to them than meets the eye. Discover the ideas behind them with science historian Professor Cain.
During June 2013, UCL’s free, public, Lunch Hour Lectures will be uprooted from their usual residence at UCL and go on tour to The Museum of London. The lectures will be held at the Museum of London every Tuesday in June between 13:15 and 13:55. The lectures will also be available to be viewed live online.
