Does the recently discovered and controversial "Dueling Dinosaurs" fossil provide proof of the validity of  Nanotyrannus as a species vs classification as a juvenile T. rex? Without a doubt according to Robert and his colleagues Dr. Robert Bakker of the Houston Museum of Natural History and Pete Larson of the Black Hills Institute.

Nanotyrannus is the rarest and most enigmatic of the Late Cretaceous tyrannosaurids. Its sleek build, smaller size, and powerful legs made it an exceptionally agile and lethal predator. "Tara" is one of only three of her kind yet discovered, and is  the only fully mounted skeleton of this fascinating dinosaur.

Florida Archaeology has lost one of its most beloved champions. Anne Reynolds

Anne was the heart and soul of the Kissimmee Valley Archaeological and Historical Conservancy.

A long time member of the Florida Anthropological Society,

Her love of Florida Archaeology led her and her husband Charles to buy the property that Blueberry Mound is located on.

The site has turned out to be one of the most important sites in Florida.


Rest in peace Anne


An Award winning Poet & Author of 3 NovelsShe was a Finalist in the Royal Palm Literary Awards.

Anne had a quiet dignity about her, she was always ready to help in any way she could.

She lived her life to the fullest measure and in the end passed with courage and dignity.

Her gentle laugh and calm grandeur
will be missed.

A beautiful voice for Florida Archaeology has fallen silent. But her legacy will live on in the hearts of all she touched.
