This year, portions of the dig site have been updated to represent a Jurassic sea bed like you might find in Europe.

Here, you’ll get to dig up marine reptiles like the long-necked Plesiosaur and the dolphin-shaped Ichthyosaur. Dig deeper to find prehistoric fish and invertebrates like our gigantic Ammonite!
