Mary Anning Rocking On

June 12, 2021


This beautiful lively maquette of the Mary Anning statue, by Denise Dutton, was recently unvelied in Lyme Regis, showing Mary with her fossil hunting tools and her faithful dog. This is another great stride towards the erection of this long-awaited memorial to a ground breaking fossil hunter.

The campaign group are now working on the educational programme; the  Mary Anning Rocks Learning Legacy, that will go along with the statue, so that she will no longer be one of the multitude of capable, creative and clever women, previousy left out of the history books.
