Not much activity on this blog but lots in the lab. We’ve been very busy….
The Niger Sauropod project is nearly at an end! We’ve fully prepared all the bones that were wrapped in plaster jackets, and have moved onto the ‘float bags’. ‘Float’ is the term given to the fossils which are found loose on the surface, rather than being buried in the rock. We had a wealth of float material to work through, but most of this is done now, with just two large bags remaining (simply labelled ‘bones’).
