Over the past year, Archaeological and Historic Conservancy has been excavating and monitoring the development of a lot near the New River, While the lot was empty, what was discovered was a plethora of trash pits dating from the 1900's to the 1950's. These amazing pockets of time give us a unique look into the lives of the family that lived here that often times historic records do not.

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.
