I've already posted here this kind of historical list. Now it's somewhat improved (though not much) and I'd like to know your opinion. The list ends in 1842, when the name *Dinosauria* was firstly coined by Richard Owen.

Another 60 years and you could have added:

"1903 - First dinosaur bone found in Australia"

Not exactly an earth-shattering event outside of Australia though...
