How to clean and restore a dinosaur vertebrae

Dinosaur Vertebra

...the vertebrae of an Iguanodon more than 125 million years old...

Alex Peaker from Dinosaur Isle Museum, on the Isle of Wight, was filmed at the museum for Heritage100. He described how to clean and restore the vertebrae of an Iguanodon more than 125 million years old for research and display.

You can watch the 4 minute film in the 'Gallery' on this page.

The film provides an insight into the sort of dedicated work that was required to prepare the Neovenator vertebrae featured on Heritage100.

Alex goes on to describe some of the recent fascinating fossil finds on the Isle of Wight dating to the 'Age of the Dinosaurs'.
