May 12 1999: Cleaning the separate bones
The clay surrounding the skull is soluble in water, but we did not dare wash them as they were so fragile. One of the more robust bones, the jugal, was cleaned using water to remove a piece of the lacrimal attached.
The jugal after the cleaning in water, here compared to the jugal of Allosaurus.
