Palaeontology and its impact on popular culture.


An exploration of lost worlds as reimagined in fantasy fiction – the perfect gift for palaeontology lovers!

This isn't just another book about dinosaurs, it's a book which examines the science, history, comics, fairy tales and legends that abound in the field of palaeontology. It tells you about the researchers that have contributed to our understanding of the history of living creatures and extinction in ancient times. It describes the range of methods and concepts on which the science of fossils is based and explores the history of the animals which have populated the Earth for hundreds of millions of years. It also gives mention to the dinosaurs which have crushed buildings in New York, the dino-esque atomic mutations that terrorise Japan and pterodactyls that fly off carrying people in their claws, as seen in comics and films.

It's also a book which describes the impact that palaeontology has had on mass media over time. From 19th-century science books fantasy stories and magazines from the beginning of the 20th century to modern day representations in literature and cinematography.
