The Hunterian Museum, at the Royal College of Surgeons, 1845. Creator: Unknown

The Hunterian Museum, at the Royal College of Surgeons, 1845. Display of animal skeletons at The Hunterian in London. The first large object seen, on the right, is the fossil of a gigantic extinct Armadillo, from Buenos Ayres. A shell of the common armadillo is placed on this enormous specimen, to show by comparison its vast size, which was also its protection, as it has no joints to roll itself up with, like the animal of the present day. On the left is the fossil skeleton of the Mylodon, a large extinct quadruped of the Sloth family, also found at Buenos Ayres. It is disposed as if climbing up a tree, to feed on the branches, &c., such being the manner in which, it is conjectured, it contrived to exist...The large skeleton to the right of the centre, is that of Charles O'Brian, the Irish giant, and is eight feet in height'. From "Illustrated London News", 1845, Vol VII

Richard Owen, English anatomist and paleontologist, 1872

Richard Owen, English anatomist and paleontologist, 1872. After qualifying and practising as a surgeon, Owen (1804-1892) made major contributions in the fields of anatomy and paleontology. He was responsible for first coining the word dinosaur (terrible lizard) in 1841 for the fossilized reptiles that had been discovered. Owen was opposed to Darwin's theories, believing that natural selection was insufficient to explain evolution. From The Illustrated London News. (London, 3 February 1872)
