T. REX: The Killer Question at Peterborough Cathedral

Back to events

Event information

A touring exhibition from The Natural History Museum which tackles the monster mystery of how T. rex might have obtained its food.

Was it a ferocious hunter or a mere scavenger? Could it have been something in between – an opportunist and an ambush predator relying on easy pickings?

The exhibition encourages visitors to look closer at T. rex – its size, the power in its legs, the length of its arms, the sharpness of its teeth, its keen sense of smell – and how they think the animal lived. Was its physique best suited to catching and slaughtering live prey or to stealing carcasses?

This entertaining and engaging exhibition for the entire family presents the fossil evidence, scientific interpretations, and exciting scenes with lifelike animatronics to challenge what we know about the real T. rex.

The exhibition will be on show in the New Building at the east end of the Cathedral. Entry will be by ticket only, and these will go on sale in the new year.

This event is hosted by Peterborough Cathedral

Founded as a monastic community in 654AD, the cathedral became one of the most significant medieval abbeys in the country, the burial place of two queens and the scene of Civil War upheavals.
