Meet the Director of the documentary – Arthur Lakes: Discovering Dinosaurs - and find out how you can get a free copy (while supplies last). In 1877 a small-town preacher, naturalist, and drawing teacher in Colorado named Arthur Lakes made a discovery that would alter the course of science. In rock layers (just minutes from our show) he found the fossilized remains of creatures that had never been seen before. His discovery would propel Lakes on a lifelong journey, taking him from obscurity into the limelight of scientific journals and newspapers around the world.
