Ein Jahrhundertfund: die wechselvolle politische und wissenschaftliche Geschichte des Brachiosaurus brancai im Berliner Naturkundemuseum. Ein Objekt überragt seit fast 100 Jahren die Berliner Museumslandschaft: das Skelett eines Brachiosaurus brancai. Der Dinosaurier ist eine Ikone der deutschen Museums-, Wissens- und Populärkultur. Die Ausgrabung der Knochenfragmente am Berg Tendaguru in der damaligen Kolonie Deutsch-Ostafrika (heute Tansania) gilt weltweit als eine der erfolgreichsten paläontologischen Unternehmungen. Im Zusammenspiel von Politik, Wissenschaft und Museum hat sich der Brachiosaurus als besonders vielschichtiges und fragmentarisches Wissensobjekt erwiesen. Die Beiträger zeichnen die wechselvolle Geschichte dieses Objekts nach: Entdeckt und ausgegraben in der Kolonialzeit, aufgestellt während des "Dritten Reichs" und nach dem Krieg in Ost-Berlin wiedererrichtet, steht es bis heute im Zentrum des Museums für Naturkunde Berlin. Die Autorinnen und Autoren betrachten das berühmte Ausstellungsobjekt in seinem historischen Kontext und gehen auf aktuelle Debatten ein. Dadurch brechen sie vorherrschende Narrative auf und öffnen den Blick für die Geschichten hinter dem Dinosaurier.

Devil’s Gate—the name conjures difficult passage and portends a doubtful outcome. In this eloquent and captivating narrative, Tom Rea traces the history of the Sweetwater River valley in central Wyoming—a remote place including Devil’s Gate, Independence Rock, and other sites along a stretch of the Oregon Trail—to show how ownership of a place can translate into owning its story. Seemingly in the middle of nowhere, Devil’s Gate is the center of a landscape that threatens to shrink any inhabitants to insignificance except for one thing: ownership of the land and the stories they choose to tell about it. The static serenity of the once heavily traveled region masks a history of conflict. Tom Sun, an early rancher, played a role here in the lynching of the only woman ever hanged in Wyoming. The lynching was dismissed as swift frontier justice in the wake of cattle theft, but Rea finds more complicated motives that involve land and water rights. The Sun name was linked with the land for generations. In the 1990s, the Mormon Church purchased part of the Sun ranch to memorialize Martin’s Cove as the site of handcart pioneers who froze to death in the valley in 1856. The treeless, arid country around Devil’s Gate seems too immense for ownership. But stories run with the land. People who own the land can own the stories, at least for a time.
