JOIN DR. WILLIAM THIERFELDER for a VIRTUAL LECTURE via ZOOM in the SAFETY and COMFORT of YOUR HOME

PROFILES: MARY ANNING:  Fossil Hunter

Mary Anning was born in England in 1799. She became a fossil hunter in her youth, discovering several important fossils  that would change the course of paleontology and lay the foundation for Darwin’s theory of evolution. Many scientists throughout Europe and America sought her consultation about prehistoric anatomy, but because she was female she was neither allowed to pursue a career in science nor eligible to join the Geological Society of London. After more than a century of obscurity, Anning is finally being recognized for her amazing contributions.
