Natural History Museum of Norway
Institution: Natural History Museum of Norway

Making its second AWA deposit, the Natural History Museum chose to preserve a ‘local’ - the data from Ophthalmothule Cryostea, dubbed ‘Britney’, a 150-million-year-old fossil of a lizard like animal that was found on a neighbouring mountain in 2012. This find was incredibly important as it is the only one of this type of plesiosaurs in the world with a preserved skull, giving much more insight into the creature. Now Britney will be preserved for the next millennia in digital form on a reel of piqlFilm.
