Not wrong, it was information that was believed to be correct at the time.

The replica skeleton of the Diplodocus carnegii housed in the central hall of the Natural History Museum in London was assembled in 1905 with its tail inverted and remained like that until it was noticed and corrected in 1934!

"Gæð a wyrd swa hio scel, ac gecnáwan þín gefá!": "Fate goes ever as she shall, but know thine enemy!".
I can teach you with a quip, if I've a mind; I can trick you into learning with a laugh; Oh, winnow all my folly and you'll find, A grain or two of truth among the chaff!

Makes sense to me.
