Welcome to When Dinosaurs Roamed the Earth podcast series by Cambridge For Kids. This fourth episode looks at The Discovery of Dinosaurs Existence. Ancient peoples most likely uncovered fossils of dinosaur bones from time to time, but they had no idea what they had found. Ancient Chinese writings from over 2,000 years ago found "dragon" bones. In 1676, Reverend Robert Plot discovered a large thigh bone in England. He believed it belonged to an ancient species of human "giants". Today we call them, dinosaurs!
