Description: Discover one of the largest dinosaur bone beds of the Jurassic Period, the Cleveland-Lloyd Dinosaur Quarry. Here, as many as 46 individual Allosaurus were buried. Did the large pack die all at once? Were they washed in from far away? We will discover what science says about this mysterious graveyard. We will also visit the USU Eastern Prehistoric Museum in Price, UT, to learn what other giants of the past once roamed eastern Utah. Bring your sense of wonder and curiosity with us as we travel west to an ancient world!
