Studying the history behind the Berlin "Brachiosaurus" [Giraffatitan] from Tendaguru in the face of recent efforts by politicians in Tanzania to reclaim the fossil remains;  project is called „Dinosaurier in Berlin. Brachiosaurus brancai als wissenschaftliche, politische und kulturelle Ikone, 1906–2016“. [Dinosaur in Berlin. Brachiosaurus brancai as scientific, political, and culture icon, 1906-2016]. When the fossils were excavated, the site in the colonial region was considered <<herrenloses Land>> [ungoverned or unclaimed land] that supposedly belonged to no one, distinguished from native-controlled lands. New dinosaur fossils excavated in Tendaguru by the Berlin Museum belong to Tanzania (in German)



Also, on a sad note, the death of  paleontologist Josep Vicent Santafé Llopis, who studied dinosaurs in Spain, included tracks, and helped develop dinosaur research in the Catalan region (in Catalan)
