Megalosaurus Month - 12-29 February 2024

Megalosaurus Month

During February 2024 we will be hosting an unusual visitor in the Upper Library at Burlington House.

2024 marks the 200th anniversary of the first scientific description of a non-avian dinosaur by William Buckland (1784-1856), Professor of Geology at Oxford University. His paper “Notice on the Megalosaurus or great Fossil Lizard of Stonesfield" was presented at a meeting of the Geological Society on 20 February 1824. 

Throughout February the Society will be celebrating this important marker in the history of science with a number of events about or inspired by dinosaurs. The exciting programme will include drawing classes, lectures, family activities and school visits.

The focal point of the celebrations will be a life-sized replica of a skeleton of a Megalosaurus which will be installed in the Upper Library of the Geological Society, Burlington House, Piccadilly, London from the 12-29 February 2024.

Please sign-up to our email newsletter for updates.

Megalosaurus Month is kindly supported by the Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851.
