    • The story of one of the most exciting dinosaur discoveries ever made in Britain began in 1983 when a huge claw bone was found by an amateur fossil hunter in a quarry around 30 miles south of London.

      In this video Angela Milner, one of the Natural History Museum fossil experts who described and named the dinosaur, explains why Baryonyx was such an amazing and significant find that led to the discovery of a whole new group of dinosaurs, the Spinosaurs.
