This Week On Primeval – 06 – 27 – 09

SPOILER ALERT!! – An anomaly opens in the middle of a huge junkyard and a dinosaur from the Cretaceous era comes through. The Dracorex is wounded, which only makes it more aggressive. The team is trying to force it back when, suddenly, a medieval knight on horseback gallops through the anomaly, chasing what he thinks is a dragon. The knight decides the modern world must be hell and his only chance to make it to heaven is by slaying the creature – this is his quest. The team finds itself in the unusual position of dealing with not only a dinosaur on the loose, but also a deranged medieval knight who is convinced that he is a latter-day St. George. Episode seven of season three airs Saturday, June 27th @ 8 p.m. EST/PST on BBC America.

THE CREATURES OF PRIMEVAL – Dracorex is a dinosaur from the late Cretaceous era of North America. Only a skull and a few vertebrae have ever been found and named Dracorex hogwartsia, meaning “dragon king of Hogwarts.” They were discovered in the Hell Creek Formation in South Dakota. It belongs to the larger group of herbivorous or omnivorous Pachycephalosauridae, which are known for their thickened, domed skulls. There is much debate about why they had ornate skulls; one theory is that they used them to head-butt each other during mating rituals.
