A GUIDE TO BRITISH LANGUAGE AND CULTURE Given that in mind, and noting the ignorance of British English and culture in many stories set in Britain, but written by (primarily) American writers, I have compiled this little guide to English language and culture. Please feel free to send suggestions for more things to be included to If you find this page useful, please consider making a small donation to the animal refuge I am struggling to run in Argentina ( The present financial crises has seen donations plummet to almost nothing, while prices of dog food have sky-rocketted. You can read all about the refuge at 1) EDUCATION - as the vast majority of stories written by foreigners and set in Britain are about Harry Potter, there is a separate section on Education.

The type (and only known) species is Dracorex hogwartsia, meaning "dragon king of Hogwarts". It is known from one nearly complete skull (the holotype TCMI 2004.17.1), as well as four cervical vertebrae: the atlas, third, eighth and ninth. These were discovered in the Hell Creek Formation in South Dakota by three amateur paleontologists from Sioux City, Iowa. The skull was subsequently donated to the Children's Museum of Indianapolis for study in 2004, and was formally described by Bob Bakker and Robert Sullivan in 2006.[1] However, Jack Horner et al. suspect that it is a juvenile Pachycephalosaurus and an analysis of pachycephalosaur fossils by a joint team from the University of California, Berkeley and the Museum of the Rockies has questioned the validity of two named genera of pachycephalosaur, Dracorex and Stygimoloch.
