The Fossil Woman by Tom Sharpe


We are delighted to offer ‘The Fossil Woman’, the new illustrated biography of Mary Anning, the world’s first great fossil hunter.

Drawing on recent research, author and eminent geologist Tom Sharpe takes a fresh look at the life and achievements of a woman who is finally gaining the recognition she merits. Her remarkable discoveries revealed a previously unknown world of extinct Jurassic reptiles and dinosaurs preserved in the cliffs of Lyme Regis, providing a unique insight into the age of the dinosaur and informed the development of the science of Palaeontology.
