Based around his acclaimed book, The Rise and Fall of the Dinosaurs: The Untold Story of a Lost World (The Times Science Book of the Year 2018), leading palaeontologist and evolutionary biologist Steve Brusatte shows how these remarkable creatures created a 150-million-year empire that saw human-size tyrannosaurs, carnivores even larger than a T. Rex and feathered raptors. He describes a real and even more fascinating Jurassic world.

A major re-evaluation of the creatures that ruled the earth for 150 million years by one of the world’s leading palaeontologists. Using fossil clues gathered with new technology, Brusatte traces these magnificent creatures from their evolution in the Triassic period, through the Jurassic to their final catastrophic days in the Cretaceous. Discover what it means to be a dinosaur hunter. This is the thrilling untold story of a lost world.
