In the shadow of Barnum Brown

Another great addition to the AMNH YouTube channel, here are Lowell Dingus and Mark Norell providing a quick introduction to legendary dinosaur hunter Barnum Brown.



Dingus and Norell collaborated on last year's biography, Barnum Brown: The Man Who Discovered Tyrannosaurus rex. Read Brian Switek's review here.

  1. 2 newspaper clippings in the video read: "His 8,000,000 Year-Old Tomb" and "Monster that lived 3,000,000 Years Ago". I get such a thrill to realize how very recently we discovered Deep Time, practically within my lifetime!

  2. Oh yeah, that's right! I got a kick out of the 3mya one. I occasionally run across other comically short time spans when reading old magazines covering paleo subjects. Missed the 8mya, will have to take another look for it.
