Dinosaurs of China Exhibition
Wollaton Hall has been lucky enough to host an exhibition of dinosaur skeletons and fossils which have been loaned to Nottingham from China. The exhibits on show have only been excavated within the last 30 years and show strong evidence for a link between dinosaurs and birds. Since it is such a rare opportunity to see these fossils, all of the children from Edna G. Olds enjoyed a visit to Wollaton Hall to view the exhibition. Year 6 visited on Thursday 19th October and were astounded by the sheer size of some of the dinosaurs. They couldn't believe that one of them nearly reached the roof of Wollaton Hall! The visit also provoked a lot of discussion about the similarities between dinosaurs and birds.
