The Reign of the Dinosaurs | Children’s Christmas Lecture

University of Reading. The Reign of the Dinosaurs.

Have you ever wondered how the dinosaurs came to rule the world? Join Dr Ciara O’Donovan as we travel back 230 million years to revisit the Mesozoic Earth.

We will meet the ancestor of all dinosaurs (who may surprise you!) and follow the dinosaurs as they spread across the globe. Journeying through time, we’ll watch as one species evolved into hundreds with varying shapes and sizes. Finally, find out what happened when the world was filled with dinosaurs and how a gigantic asteroid colliding with Earth ended their story. Or did it?

Admission is free. Booking essential, reservations on a first-come, first-served basis.

Suitable for children 7-12 years.

The lecture will be interpreted in British Sign Language (BSL) by an interpreter.
