The fossil hunt that almost killed me...
 
Jared Archibald

In his work as a taxidermist, naturalist and curator of history at the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory, Jared Archibald has been all over Australia but there's one place that looms big in his mind, a river - one that holds secrets so rare, he'll do anything to try and get them. 

 

Jared did manage to extract the Diprotodon fossil and it's now in Alice Springs where scientists are working to unlock its secrets.

 

This story was told at our fourth event, held at the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory, around the theme 'Connections'.
