Simon Conway Morris shows what the world would have looked like when ancient animals like the Brachiosaurus were alive.
Watch the full second lecture of the series:

Simon Conway Morris gave the 1996 Christmas Lectures "The History Of Our Bones" about the important role fossils and bones play in helping us understand the past.

The second lecture "Fossils Come Alive", where this clip is from, sees Simon using the woolly mammoth as an example of how we can use bones and ancient art to uncover the shape and look of an animal.
