To Hell Creek and Back: The Story of the Tufts-Love T. rex
Feb 19, 2020 Season 1 Episode 1
DIG Field School

A world of blistering heat and dirt, a biosphere where 20-foot-tall dinosaurs roamed. Home to cretaceous creatures that could rip apart their prey with 6-inch serrated teeth! Venture into this landscape to learn how a group of researchers and school teachers tracked down the elusive Tyrannosaurus rex in the sweltering badlands on Montana.  Follow how the last-minute discovery of a small protrusion of ribs led to the extraction of a three-thousand-pound block containing the head of a ravenous rex. You’ll be on the ground in an active paleontological field research site examining fossils from millions of years ago. You’ll also learn what it takes to bring a prized scientific discovery into the forefront of research and for all the public to see and touch.
