End of an Era – Birth of an Age
A thundering scraper churning through the black soil heralded the end of the palaeontological line for the Elliot Dig Site, leading up to the June 2005 dinosaur dig in western Queensland.
In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:
The dig was soon upon us and before we knew it the Queensland Museum party was packed up and moving. For the first time in almost 10 years the weather was going to play a crucial role in the success or failure of a museum dig. We’ve been pretty lucky with our field trips over the past decade or so with very few days of bad weather. (Unfortunately this has also meant very few days of good weather for graziers!) On our arrival at Belmont Station the weather looked fine, but by the third day it absolutely dropped down and the ominous signs of a very wet night greeted us when we pulled into the Tatts Hotel in Winton to meet and greet our first team of diggers.
