The world of Dinosaurs is set to come to life at a book signing event today.

Doncaster palaeontologist and author Dean Lomax will be signing Dinosaurs of the British Isles, which looks at the history of dinosaur species discovered in the British Isles.

It is aimed at a broad audience, from academics to those with a general interest in fossils.

Dean will have real, multi-million year old fossils at the event.

He is resident palaeontologist at Doncaster Museum and visiting scientist at The University of Manchester.

Dean has published numerous scientific and popular articles and recently appeared on BBC Look North and Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch Live, talking about palaeontology.

He will be signing copies of his book and taking questions from the public at the free event.

Councillor Bob Johnson, Doncaster Council Cabinet Member for Culture said: “This is one of many interesting events held at our libraries all year round and offers people an insight into the fascinating subject of Dinosaurs of the British Isles.”

Copies of Dinosaurs of the British Isles will be available to buy at the event.

The event will be between 11am and 2pm in Café Culture at the Central Library.
