Prehistoric Life redesign

We've had a spring clean.

Some of our Prehistoric Life content had been on the site for a few years. Science has moved on, and our older content was starting to become out of date.

This means that a lot of our content has moved, and some of our older pages have been removed altogether. If you've bookmarked a page, or followed a link from somewhere else, you've probably arrived at the wrong place.

You can find links to some of our classic content below. Or check out our new Prehistoric Life homepage.
