1 National Museum WalesBRIDGEND, WALES (June 25, 2015) — On our last day in Wales, Tim had an errand at the National Museum Wales in Cardiff. We took the opportunity to visit their new dinosaur exhibit with the skeleton that had been collected from an outcrop we visited earlier in the week at Lavernock Point.

2 Dino displayThe exhibit is well done. The fossil skeleton represents the first carnivorous dinosaur found in Wales, and one of the earliest Jurassic dinosaurs found anywhere.

Cardiff city hallThis is Cardiff City Hall. I loved the early 20th Century architecture in this Cardiff district, but we didn’t have time to explore. It is now off to southern England for more fieldwork.
