Mary Anning found the first full ichthyosaur skeleton near Lyme in 1814. The site of her former home is now the excellent Lyme Regis Philpot Museum. An incredibly famous fossilist in her day, the bonneted Miss Anning did much to pioneer the science of modern-day palaeontology; the museum exhibits her story along with spectacular fossils and other prehistoric finds.
