THE LOST WORLD PROJECT
"That mountain, Roraima, haunted me for forty years"
Sir David Attenborough
After an arduous expedition, Sir Everard Im Thurn finally scaled the summit of South America's Mount Roraima in 1884. A 'strange country of nightmares', it didn't contain the dinosaurs the Victorians had hoped for, but an eerie moonscape of carnivorous plants, walking frogs and screeching Oilbirds.
