      All the conference delegates were presented with a special publication –a beautifully produced and exquisitely illustrated hardback book in commemoration of the occasion.

        It seems from a comment in wherrygirl’s photo thread that you are in a dinosaur mood, but first here is the Ancient Elephant Museum!

        Paths through the gardens link the various museum buildings.

        Those stone tables and seats are so COMMON all over Thailand!

        I have had many an hour on seats like that, drinking cold beer in good company.

          Imagine how terrifying it would be finding yourself on the ground, on the back, looking up at that one when it was alive and furious!

              They are replicas to show the relative size and shape for this species which can be inferred from actual fossils that have been found. There are fossils of tusks, teeth, and various parts of the skeleton on display in the museum.

                I would expect, if they were real, they would be highly priced and extremely valuable (requiring more security perhaps).
