Mary Anning, the Fossil Woman

About

Who sells sea shells on the sea shore?   ...  Mary Anning, the Fossil Woman

Tom Sharpe, author of a recently publised book will tell us all about this pioneering early palaeontologist.  

This talk will exmine what we know of the life of this extraordinary woman, her famous - and less well-known - discoveries, and her part within the wider network of the developing science of palaeontology in the nineteenth century, and will seek to dispel at least a few of the Mary myths.  

Tickets in person or over the phone £4 from Lewes Tourist Information Centre 01273 4834448.  You will be asked to leave an email address.  If the Covid guidance changes, the talk will be delivered over Zoom.
