Once in a while, we come across a news story of paleontologists finding a dinosaur fossil in some part of the world. The significance of the fossil is then explained and the news story is buried into the depths of our mind to be excavated out the next time, there is a similar news story.

But there is a lot more than happens between discoveries, which is left out of the story but if you would like to witness it, you could simply visit, the Ghost Ranch in New Mexico, a hot bed for finding dinosaur fossils.

In this episode of the Shelf Life, you can see how dinosaur fossils are excavated and prepared to be brought back to the American Natural History Museum to be added to their vast collection and studied some day.





Excavations in Ghost Ranch began in the year 1928 and continue to this day.
