Since the 1900s, dinosaur fossils have been discovered from Jurassic
to Cretaceous age strata, from all across the prairie provinces of
Canada and the Western United States, yet little material is known
from the outer provinces and territories. In British Columbia, fossils
have long been uncovered from the prevalent mid-Cambrian Burgess
Shale, but few deposits date from the Mesozoic, and few of these are
dinosaurian. The purpose of this paper is to review the history of
dinosaurian body fossils in British Columbia. The following
dinosaurian groups are represented: coelurosaurians, thescelosaurids,
iguanodontians, ankylosaurs and hadrosaurs.
