Archaeopteryx – shaken but not stirred

For over 150 years, Archaeopteryx has been almost universally assumed to be a primitive bird. However, earlier this year, an intriguing dinosaur fossil from China challenged this entrenched view: Xiatongia, a Velociraptor-like dinosaur, showed many similarities to Archaeopteryx. Archaeopteryx thus appeared to be most closely related to certain dinosaurs, not to birds. Now, sophisticated methods […]
