It was very nice to meet up with one of our authors, Dean Lomax, during his recent research visit to the University of Manchester and Manchester Museum last week.

Dean is currently researching ichthyosaurs, but also chatted about other fossils from Whitby, one of his favourite collecting sites and for which he wrote the very popular guide book: Fossils of the Whitby Coast (click the cover for more info about this title).
