Our time at the Triceratops site came to an end on Friday, June 27. As we rushed to get the last jackets out of the quarry and close down the site for the year, a menacing storm was rolling in, but we made it out just in time (Figure 1). With the back of our pick-up truck filled with plaster jackets (Figure 2), we headed back to the Royal Ontario Museum.
For the past week, a small crew from the Royal Ontario Museum’s palaeontology division has been excavating a Triceratops site on private ranchland in Harding County, South Dakota.
We returned from the field in Patagonia to the Argentine capital, Buenos Aires. At about 13 million people in the metro area, BA is the largest city in the country, and third largest in modern Gondwana (behind Sao Paulo and Cairo). There are dinosaurs in Buenos Aires, but only in museums, as the fossils were found in other parts of the country- mostly Patagonia. We spent one day at the Natural Science Museum, or MACN, on the edge of Palermo.
