They thought they were dragons, demons, monsters, gods?

May 15, 2019

Let us all sit back and imagine our ancestors stumbling across a dinosaur skeleton and what they might have thought it was. After all, there is a good possibility that these are where the stories of dragons basically come from. Did they think the land with the skeleton was sacred? Was it to be feared? Without having knowledge of dinosaurs, what would be your first thoughts about a T.Rex skeleton if you stumbled across one?

I’m not sure who the artist is but this sparks my imagination.
