      Abstract

      The Bristol Dinosaur Project involved extensive preparation and conservation of a large collection of macro- and microvertebrate fossils. The starting point was some four tonnes of fossiliferous cave-fill breccia, and the laboratory procedures involved a broad range of physical and chemical approaches to reduce this matrix and extract, conserve, and curate the dinosaur bones and microvertebrate remains. The initial state of the remains, and the laboratory procedures followed provide a good case study of historical collections found in many institutions that are in urgent need of care and dedicated work. The program also provided examples of good and bad practice, while training students in laboratory skills.
