dream job

Bristol Dinosaur Education Officer
Department of Earth Sciences
University of Bristol

Google images searches for <dinosaur +medieval> are frustratingly unfruitful. I was expecting far more dragons, and of course the St Columba/Nessie encounter.

Probably inappropriate attire for this job interview, a splendid St George And The Dragon costume is available for hire:

“[…] one guy wore it to a medieval banquet whilst another customer in south Wales wore it but insisted on wearing a Welsh rugby jerey instead of the St. George tabbard! Corporate customers include Manchester City Council, Rotherham Borough Council & Concept Finishing Services Ltd.”
