Around what time period are people known to have discovered the dinosaurs?
Answer People started finding dinosaur fossils in the 1800s
The first known dinosaur fossils to be discovered were teeth found by a couple in England, though they didnt know what they had discovered at the time. A British scientist realized what they were in 1841, and gave the name Dinosaurs meaning "terrible lizard." In the late 1800s, people started looking for fossils and dozens of new species were discovered and interest in dinosaurs grew.
