This course presents a survey of dinosaurs and other fossils found in Egypt, and the role of shifting continents and changing climates in the distribution of genera and the geological formations in which they are found. It also presents an overview of paleontological exploration in Egypt, and research in adjoining regions that sheds light on Egyptian dinosaurs and other fossils.
