Of dinosaurs

"Anything is possible

If you wanted a phrase to sum up the mood among dinosaur researchers, you could do a lot worse than those three simple words. And with good reason: in recent years a wealth of stunning discoveries have transformed our understanding of dinosaurs, the world they inhabited and the animals they shared it with. So profound have these finds been that palaeontologists have learned more about dinosaurs in the past decade or so than in the preceding 200 years. The prehistoric world you read about as a child has changed beyond measure.

Over the next 16 pages, New Scientist reviews the biggest and best new dinosaur finds from around the world. We get under the skin and inside the minds of these awesome creatures, and assess what all the new discoveries tell us about this amazing chapter in the history of life.
