Join Brent Breithaupt, paleontologist for the Wyoming Bureau of Land Management and former Curator of the University of Wyoming Geological Museum, as he relates his experience leading the excavation of "Big Al" the most complete Allosaurus skeleton ever found. Hear how Big Al lived and died in prehistoric Wyoming, only to be dug up -- first illegally, then legally -- and what we have discovered about Allosaurus from his remains.

Breithaupt will sign his recent book The Story of Big Al: Saving a Dinosaur for the Future following the lecture.
