Tony Robinson and Phil Harding travel to the Rocky Mountains in Montana, USA, for this special program on dinosaurs and the professional and private 'dinosaur hunters' who seek and recover fossil remains. Accompanying several digs, they soon learn that the methods used by the dinosaur hunters turn out to be similar to those employed by archaeologists. After joining a museum dig to excavate the bones of various tyrannosauroids, they discover the profitable tourist industry that dinosaur hunting has spawned in the US. Their journey culminates in a trip to the Badlands, where they help dinosaur hunter Jack Horner dig up the remains of a Tyrannosaurus.

In regards to "B. rex": The specimen was fully excavated in 2003. In 2005, a scientific study of "B. rex" determined that she was not only a young female Tyrannosaurus Rex, but that she was producing eggs when she died between the ages of 16 and 20.

I found a piece of petrified whale jawbone on the Chesapeake bay beach a few years ago. There were beach goers all over and no one had noticed it.

Love Tony and Phil they've always been my favorites! I think it's ironic they had to come to America for the oldest thing they've ever found. ❤

This episode has me in stitches! I don’t know what’s funnier, sir Tony, trying to pronounce Montana or Phil pulling out a kids picture book to compare dinosaurs. They are doing what they do best archaeology, but seem to be lost alien country.😂

This has been my all-time favorite episode. To see Tony and Phil here in the US, digging for dinosaur bones is a highlight. I think this is the 3rd time I've watched. You guys should come back and check out the La Brea tar pits in Los Angeles.

Several years ago I took my kids on a road trip, from the Texas Panhandle up to South Dakota to see Mount Rushmore. We were gone a week. On our way back we stopped for lunch in a small town in Wyoming. Outside of this town, there was an active archeological site! It was a massive mammoth site with multiple mammoths in various stages of exhumation. They had a wood plank pathway around the site, with information to read about the mammoths being actively excavated by university students. We could watch them work! It was fantastic!!!

Absolute History, is there any chance you guys could find and release Tony's "Blood and Honey" series? It's so much fun. My husband grew up on it and introduced me to it when our library still carried the VHS tapes. I would love to have my kids see it and I think your viewers would love it

Thank you so much for educating me regarding the “asteroid” theory. I’ve always wondered about how they all died at once? This where the saying “Patience is a virtue” is really literal 😮. Something I definitely don’t have!

There are dino sites all through the West from Montana to Arizona. More interesting (publicly accessible) sites are Makoshika State Park (up near Glendive, Montana) and Dinosaur National Monument in Utah/Colorado.

If one team decides that it is too good for others, or the general public to find and hold, they can decide it all can be hidden. And what to tell and what to "control" especially history goes to a few.

This was terrific fun to watch -- and I have to admit, part of the fun was watching laconic frontier Americans and the exuberant, extroverted Phil conversing. A switch from the stereotypical outgoing American and introverted Brit!

It's so sad to see archeological sites destroyed by greedy idiots. Right when I wanted to ask people in the comments if there's such a problem in other countries I realised that it's an issue not of a particular country, but the capitalist world as a whole. In Russia archeologists suffer from private parties with metal detectors and it's a huge problem, laws don't really work as not many people report such activity and if they do it takes time for the police to get to the spot and get the perpetrators red handed - and if this happens the fine is not that high.

Finally some of the stolen artifacts from Mesa Verde are being returned by the Finnish government. A Swedish archeologist, Gustaf Nordenskiöld, stole a bunch of bones and other objects from the site over 100 years ago. They were in Finland in a museum, but now the Finnish government agreed to return them to the US.

@Catherine LW will they test them for DNA or are they already attributed to certain tribes? Either way this is so heartwarming!
Catherine LW
Catherine LW 4 aylar önce
@Домашние любимцы It's according to whichever tribes occupied the area from where it was stolen. I don't know if they were able to extract DNA from the bones. But apparently the tribes of the area are taking care of the remains according to their culture. (Navajo, Hopi, Apache and Ute).

With that negative attitude we would never have discovered anything! - geology ( elements --> physics, chemistry, dating methods for samples, continental drift --> where to look for oil, gas, minerals ), archeology, history, how did we end up in the current situation etc. ?

It can tell us the history of prehistoric earth. The bones of animals themselves can tell us alot of what the landscape was like. How and where they are found can also tell us what was going on our planet at the time. Most paleontologists have a geology background. It's how we know about weather cycles, and what caused them, as well as cataclysmic events, like volcano erruptions. It has also helped us understand evolution. Also, don't discount natural human curiosity. It's part of our nature to try and understand everything. People were seeking out and collecting dinosaur bones before the knew what they were. They were often attributed to mythological creatures, especially partial skeletons that were put together incorrectly. They were often attributed to Dragons, cyclops, gods etc.
