1: A New Season

Wyoming, USA

Field Museum paleontologist Dr. Lance Grande provides a brief overview of the 2008 excavation season at Fossil Lake—one of the richest fossil deposits in the world—and introduces Jim Tynsky, the fossil excavator who owns the lease on the quarry where The Field Museum works each year. This is the first installment in a five-part series of Video Reports documenting The Field Museum’s 2008 fossil-hunting expedition in Wyoming's Green River Formation.
