Dino Firsts



Ignoring, for the moment, that the Chinese were digging up and eating
dinosaur bones for centuries (thinking that they were dragon bones),
when was the first dinosaur bone per se "discovered" and "identified" as
such?

And....

When was the first "complete" mounted skeleton put on display. AMNH put
the first sauropod dinosaur on display in 1903, but was there an earlier
non-sauropod displayed? The Crystal Palace exhibit was not actual
mountings, but rather sculptures, or am I mistaken?

Thanks!
