Our Influential person is...Mary Anning

The Female Fossilist Who Became a Jurassic Period Expert - JSTOR Daily

 Mary Anning was a pioneering palaeontologist and fossil collector. Mary Anning was born in 1799 in Lyme Regis, in the southwest English county of Dorset. Lyme Regis is now part of what is now called the Jurassic Coast, and discoveries are still being made to this day.  Mary discovered her first fossil at the age of just 12! Despite her growing reputation for finding and identifying fossils, the scientific community was hesitatant to recognnise her work. Male scientists - who frequently bought the fossils Mary would uncover, clean, prepare and identify - often did not credit her discoveries in their scientific papers on the finds, even when writing about her groundbreaking ichthyosaur find.
