Paul's greatest discovery, so far....

Dear Mr .Barford,

Thank you for your latest submission to the Institute, labeled "211-D, layer seven, of your recently discovered Tyrannosaurus Rex." We have given this specimen a careful and detailed examination, and regret to inform you that we disagree with your theory that it represents "conclusive proof of the presence of dinosaurs living in Poland two years ago." Rather, it appears that what you have found is an adjustable wrench with the jaws open, not a juvenile Tyrannosaurus Rex

It is evident that you have given a great deal of thought to the analysis of this specimen, and you may be quite certain that those of us who are familiar with your prior work in the field were loathe to come to contradiction with your findings. However, we do feel that there are a number of physical attributes of the specimen which might have tipped you off to its modern origin:
However, we gladly accept your generous donation of this fascinating specimen to the museum. While it is undoubtedly not a dinosaur fossil, it is, nonetheless, yet another riveting example of the great body of work you seem to accumulate here so effortlessly. You should know that our Director has reserved a special shelf in his own office for the display of the specimens you have previously submitted to the Institution, and the entire staff speculates daily on what you will happen upon next in your digs at the site you have discovered in your back yard
