 The Natural History Museum in London is celebrating 100 years since the
 arrival of its much-prized Diplodocus dinosaur. The skeleton is not the
 real thing, but a cast from three skeletons found in Wyoming, USA.

A word of caution: the vertebrae being cleaned in slide number seven are in fact _Baryonyx_ vertebrae casts being released from their moulds IIRC. The caption "its research spans more than 50 million years of life on earth" is an understatement by one order of magnitude.

Nitpicking I know ;-)
