    The First Fossil Hunters von Mayor, Adrienne

    Dinosaurs, Mammoths, and Myth in Greek and Roman Times
    Griffins, Cyclopes, Monsters, and Giants - these fabulous creatures of classical mythology continue to live in the modern imagination through the vivid accounts that have come down to us from the ancient Greeks and Romans. This title shows that many of the giants and monsters of myth did have a basis in fact."The First Fossil Hunters brings together mythology, art, geology, and paleontology in a convincing manner. . . . Mayor's chronicles do more that entertain; as she contends, they also show that people of Greek and Roman times had a broad understanding of fossils as organic remains of extinct organisms."---Tim Tokary, American Scientist
