DINO DIGS & MONSTER MYTHS
Inverness Town House, High Street, Inverness
Saturday 3 February 2018 11am – 4:30pm
THE DINOSAUR DETECTIVES PUPPET SHOW
Clydebuilt Puppet Theatre
The Dinosaur Detectives follow a fascinating journey surrounding the first fossil finds of Mary Anning, William Buckland and Gideon Mantell. Their finds changed the face of history when they discovered bones of creatures that became known in Victorian times as Dinosaurs. A performance with rod puppets, shadow play and large scale projections illustrates the fascination, fun and the conflict that surrounds the search for ‘Dinosaurs’.
