British Polacanthid Dinosaurs - released today

Posted by David Penney on

Our new title, British Polacanthid Dinosaurs - Observations on the History and Palaeontology of the UK Polacanthid Armoured Dinosaurs and Their Relatives by William Blows is formally released today as Volume 7 of our monograph series. We are offering an early bird 10% discount on this title for sales during the first week (LIMITED to the first 25 copies sold) of its release, using the code POLACAN at checkout.

From the back cover: 130 million years ago, armoured dinosaurs roamed what is now southern England, parts of Europe and the USA. These were the Polacanthidae, and today their remains are becoming better known and understood. This book records the history of armoured dinosaur discoveries in the United Kingdom, from Mantell, Owen and Fox to the present day. It also reviews the important fossil remains that are housed in the UK national and private collections; remains that include some of the best preserved and most interesting armour ever found of these animals. The polacanthid taxa recovered from Lower Cretaceous rocks of Europe and the USA are also discussed, along with a new taxonomic (genus) name for the Horsham specimen.
