For the past six months, scientists from the museum have been researching the 65+ million-year-old remains of Tristan. The skeleton originates from Montana, USA, where it was discovered in 2012. It belongs to a Danish businessman and is on loan to the Natural History Museum in Berlin for three years, so there is ample time to get over there in order to see it.
Of course, Europe has its own dinosaurs, including tyrannosauroids, such as Juratyrant and Eotyrannus to name just two. Indeed, the term 'dinosaur' was coined in the 1840s by a British scientist for a fossil found in the UK!
