Our understanding of our world and how it came to be would be much less if it were not for the very many great scientists, historians and explorers who have endured much in the name of scientific and educational advancement over the centuries. One such person was a woman who lived in the 19th century on the South Coast of England.   She was poorly educated, mostly self-taught and from a working-class background but her discoveries would help to create a new branch of science which would advance our understanding of what came before us. She was very definitely ahead of her time. This is the story of Mary Anning, also known as the greatest fossil hunter. Let’s find out more.   For more information visit www.injustoneday.com/thefossilhunter
