Assistant Prof. Greg Wilson and his team have discovered a Tyrannosaurus rex, including the skull, which is believed to be one of just 15 T. rex skulls found anywhere in the world! 

The T. rex skull and other bones are currently covered in a plaster jacket — similar to a cast used to cover a broken bone — in order to protect the skull during transport. The public can see the plaster-covered T. rex skull, along with other T. rex fossils and paleontology field tools, in a lobby display at the UW’s Burke Museum from August 20 to October 2. Special T. rex-themed activities will take place over Labor Day Weekend and on Sunday, September 25.
