Hadrosaur Femur from Field to Lab

The pictures below show the steps of bringing a fossil from the field into the lab. This Hadrosaur Femur discovered during the 2011 field season is currently in the lab waiting to be prepared. It took four people to carry the casted femur from where it was discovered to a road where it could be loaded into a truck and taken home

The fossil is wrapped in burlap and plaster to create a protective cast around it while it is being transported and prepared
