Welcome to the Dinosaur Field School Blog

The 2008 field season is here, and the blog which was started by Dr. Glenn Storrs in the summer of 2006, is still going strong. In these posts, you will learn about the work of paleontologists...both professional and amateur...on Cincinnati Museum Center's annual pilgrimage to the Bighorn Basin of Montana.

In the right-hand column, you can find archived posts from past seasons and from the "in-between" times when all of the work in the museum and the Geier Collections and Research Center is taking place. Staff and volunteers will be departing Cincinnati on June 29th, and posts will follow semi-regularly over the next 6 weeks as the team makes the 1600 mile trek to Montana and as they continue to uncover the fossils of juvenile Diplodocus in the "Mother's Day Quarry". We will also be including insights from the amateur paleontologists and students joining us.

But most importantly, you (as the reader) can post your own questions and comments. We'll answer every question as we get a chance, and look forward to hearing from you!
