Welcome to The Backpacker's Guide To Prehistory! For this first episode, host David Mountain explores the dos and don'ts of travelling back to the Cretaceous period, 145-66 million years ago. What clothes should you pack? What dinosaurs should you look out for? And what are the chances you'll be eaten alive on your holiday?
Providing the answers are two Cretaceous experts: Dr Monica Carvalho, a palaeobiologist with the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute (https://moccada.wixsite.com/paleobiology; https://twitter.com/moccada), and Dr Max Stockdale, a palaeontologist at the University of Bristol (https://research-information.bris.ac.uk/en/persons/max-t-stockdale; https://twitter.com/Max_Stockdale). Massive thanks to Monica and Max for appearing on the show. If you're interested in prehistoric crocodiles or the evolution of the rainforest - and I know you are - then make sure to check out their research!
