(MH) On July 13, Jurassic history will make it to the “Grund“ as a dilosophaurus comes to the National Museum of Natural History to join dinosaur bones found in the Grand-Duchy last year.

In March 2014, archeologists discovered the first ever dinosaur bones on Luxembourgish soil when they found a tooth and a toe bone near Brouch.

As scientific investigations confirmed, the paleontological discovery belongs to the so-called dilosophaurus wetherilli, a six-metre long dinosaur that is thought to have lived on lands between Luxembourg and London more than 200 million years ago.

In collaboration with German dinosaur park “Teufelsschlucht“, the National Museum of Natural History will exhibit a full-sized model of a dilosophaurus in its garden until mid-August. The dinosaur will also be visible from the Corniche.

To mark the occasion, the National Museum for Natural History will hold free paleontology workshops on Wednesdays and Fridays from 2.30pm until 5pm, starting July 17.
