LIBRARY/ New online exhibition – 'Mary Anning and the Geological Society'

We're delighted to announce a new online exhibition, 'Mary Anning and the Geological Society' , which reveals the famous fossil collector's presence and influence in the Society's collections, through her direct and indirect relationships with our Fellows.

The exhibition features images and letters from our Library and Archive, many of which are available online for the first time, including a letter from Anning to her friend and fellow fossil collector Charlotte Murchison.
