Dinner in the Iguanadon

From the Radio 4 website:

“On New Year’s Eve 1854, 21 leading scientists sat down to a sumptuous seven course banquet – served in the plastercast mould of a prehistoric beast! They were there to celebrate the creation of 33 life-size dinosaurs in the new Crystal Palace Park – a place where those same monsters still roam today.”
