Speaker information

Professor Joe Cain, UCL Science and Technology Studies

The famous ‘monsters’ in Crystal Palace have been on display since the park opened in 1854. These are the first life-sized three-dimensional sculptures of dinosaurs and other prehistoric beasts, but there is a lot more to them than meets the eye. Discover the ideas behind them with science historian Professor Cain.
