Mary Anning Film

Posted By: Natalie Manifold In: Tours Comment: 0 Hit: 173

Not a fossil, but we did see history being re-enacted on Charmouth beach yesterday. Mary Anning and friends!

Location stills from the new feature film 'Mary Anning & the Dinosaur Hunters'.

Jenny Agutter plays Miss Philpot who mentored Mary during her fledgling career as a fossiler.  She went on to become the most preeminent paleontologist of all time.  Charles Darwin's 'The Origin of Species' was influenced by her discoveries and research.
