Women Pioneers in the Earth Sciences Celebrated! Geological Society 1 – 28 February

Mary Anning posed by Dr Lorna Steel, curator of Earth Sciences at the Natural History Museum and a great friend of Rockwatch.

‘Raising Horizons’ is an exhibition by photographer Leonora Saunders in collaboration with TrowelBlazers, which aims to show that women pioneers have always been part of archaeology and the earth sciences.  Posed by inspirational individuals working in these fields today, each image meticulously recreates moments from the lives of their historic counterparts – some of the greatest British women in science over the last two centuries.
