Sauropod and Somerset – “We know that the first sovereigns lived in Great Britain at the time – says the museum’s archaeologist Susanna Midment – the bones of the most ancient saropod, Camellia, have been found in rocks dating to the same period in Somerset.”
On Benarth Beach – “We do not know if this species left these footprints – the scholar repeats – but to say that something like this may have created them is another clue”. Midment and his colleague Paul Barrett received images of footprints found on Benard Beach in 2020 from an amateur archaeologist, at first they suspected.
Prehistoric Footprints – “We get a lot of requests from the public for things that could be footprints, but there are so many geographical features that they can easily be misunderstood as footprints,” Midment explained. In this case, however, the scientists decided to do extensive research after establishing that the images were in fact prehistoric footprints.
