Imagine finding a 300 million years old fossil of an extinct early land-living vertebrate. Which steps do you take to find out how it moved?

The exhibition "Orobates. Reanimated after 300 million years" shows how an interdisciplinary research team reconstructed the movement of Orobates pabsti using robots, 3D models, state-of-the-art technology – and lots of manual work.

Students of the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar curated and designed the exhibition in two semesters as a bologna.lab "Vielfalt der Wissensformen" project.

The exhibition is on display until February 5th 2017 at the Tieranatomisches Theater in central Berlin.
