8th Archaeopteryx specimen (the Daiting Archaeopteryx). These data obtained at the ESRF contain the complete scan of the skeleton at 46.15 um voxel size (ID17), several scans for details (skull + shoulder girdle, putative feathers, snout) obtained on ID19, and a scan of the wrist obtained on BM05. All these data were acquired on inhouse beamtime in the framework of an initial collaborative project that collapsed. The raw data deposited in this database are linked to the ESRF and the repository institution of the specimen, but it does not imply that ESRF supports the scientific contents of the initial publication by Kundrát et al. or its conclusions.
