We're here!

Finally the 2010 Inverloch dig has begun (yay!)...

We settle into the house (it's very clean):

Unexplained signs appear...

First day at the beach:

Bone of the day awarded to Jesse for a (probable) ornithopod tooth.

Happy New Year to all our Dinosaur Dreamers

It is less than two weeks before the 2010 Dinosaur Dreaming field season commences and all the last minute preparations are being made. Steel capped boots, generously donated by Blundstone, have arrived as have the hand lenses ordered by new crew members. The 2010 dig T shirts have been ordered with Bluegum, the official dig T shirt people. This year we decided on another theropod dinosaur theme, following on from last year's very popular "Popcorn of the Cretaceous" design.
The 2010 design is a cheeky version of a theropod dinosaur crawling up the back of the T shirt, created by a talented young artist - Jeremy Kool. We think it will look great. Will post images of it on the T shirt when we get them. In the meantime, here is a sneak preview -
We hope it will bring us luck and produce the long awaited theropod jaw, or dare we "dream" for a theropod skull. Here's hoping.
