It wasn't published in Analog, but otherwise this description is very similar to Time Safari by David Drake. In this story the Israeli government has developed a method of time travel, and as in the question, it is only approximate, with a margin of error of a few thousand years. Additional funding is obtained by running time safaris to the Cretaceous, ...

I believe this is the The Outer Limits episode, "Think Like a Dinosaur". Michael Burr is the only permanent human occupant of the Tuulen station, situated on a vast empty plain of the Moon. His companions are the Hanen, an emotionless, dinosaur-like alien species who have developed a highly-advanced means of long-distance travel by 'jumping' ...

After DavidW asked about an anthology I started looking around, and I'm almost sure the short story is "Stellar Ships" by Ivan Yefremov, and the book was Lo mejor de la ciencia ficción rusa ("The Best of Russian Sci-fi").

It is at least speculated by the narrator that the great grand-daddy of them all, The Time Machine by HG Wells (first published in 1895), may be an answer to your question. At the end of the book the Time Traveller disappears with his machine, and the narrator muses thus: It may be that he swept back into the past, and fell among the blood-drinking, ...

@user14111 made a suggestion in a comment: 'John Russell Fearn's "Liners of Time" was published as a 4-part serial in Amazing Stories for May, June, July, and August of 1935.' I picked up a DVD with a bunch of Amazing Stories scans on eBay here, which included the May and August 1935 issues, and it turned out that the section with the characters traveling ...

Not sure how long "many years ago" is. But, this sounds a lot like the S.M. Stirling novel The Sky People. It is the first of the Lords of Creation Series. Points that match: ...about a planet with dinosaurs and Stone Age man on it. Check: In this alternate universe, life exists on Venus and Mars. In 1962 the USSR drops planetary probes on Venus ...

As confirmed by the OP in a comment, this is "The Anytime Rings", a novel by Robert Faraday (a pseudonym used by Bruce Cassiday) published in 1963. It seems not to have been reprinted, so online information on it is rather sparse. I can confirm, however, that it does deal with the adventures of two children who travel in time with their pet ...

Okay, I think I found it. The design definitely rings a bell, the dates are good, and even if I can't find the rainbow episode, I know it's this one. It's Dino Babies (Dino Junior in french), a cartoon produced in 1993 and broadcast in 1997 in France. On wikipedia.fr, I see Ireland for the origin country, but on .en it's Canada/UK. Anyways, it's the story ...

I've got a 2 out of 3 match. The second story is "The Children" by Malcom Hulke. The third story might be "Day of the Dinosaurs" by Jim Stories. Both appear in Galactic Adventures, aka Purnell's Book of Adventures in Space. That's the only place they're known to appear. Unfortunately, no story about a ship shaped like a bee. This book was ...

I found it. I was correct, it was not Day of the Dragonstar. HOWEVER, at the time I wrote the question, I was not aware that it was the first in a trilogy. The book I was seeking is the 2nd in the trilogy; The Night of the Dragonstar.

The person who asked this question isn't onsite any more, but for the record this is probably Valley of the Dragons (1961) a b&w version of a Jules Verne story. A comet comes close to the earth, sweeping up two men about to fight a duel. Once aboard the comet the two discover warring primitives and stock footage from 1940's One Million Years B.C.

Building on Frank's answer, there was a book series based on "A Sound of Thunder", "Ray Bradbury presents Dinosaur World" (actually written by Stephen Leigh). The plot continued the story, and the first one did indeed have the main characters being captured by intelligent dinosaurs, although they were ornithiomimids rather than raptors. There were several ...

There are two scale maps in the The World of Kong: A Natural History of Skull Island factbook, based on the film. The first advises us that it's 1:50000 (e.g. 1cm = 500 meters).
