The greatest fossil hunter ever known was Mary Anning, a woman from Lyme Regis.

Mary's discoveries were some of the most significant geological finds of all time. They provided evidence that was central to the development of new ideas about the history of the Earth.

Did you know she helped discover the first Ichthyosaur when she was only 10 years old?

Meet our Mary Anning gallery character and hear the stories she has to tell you about her life as a pioneering 19th century fossil hunter in Lyme Regis.

Find Mary Anning in the Fossil Marine Reptiles gallery and learn more about her life and discoveries as she shows you some of her favourite fossil specimens.
