William Buckland



William Buckland (1784-1856) was responsible for the world's first scientific description of a dinosaur fossil, although the term "dinosaur" did not exist at the time (the word "dinosauria" was first coined by Sir Richard Owen in 1842). Buckland's 1824 paper was entitled: "Notice on the Megalosaurus or Great Fossil Lizard of Stonesfield".

Buckland was the son of an Anglican parson, and deeply religious. He, devoted much of his life into trying to reconcile Biblical scripture and geology.
