Find out about the British fossil collector and palaeontologist Mary Anning. Locate the area that she did her work (map) and find out why there are such a wealth of fossils there.


Use fine ink pens to make detailed drawings of different types of fossils and shells inc barnacle shells. Use zoom on screen or microscopes to identify the fine lines within them. Apply ink wash to their drawings to add shadow and tone and then label them with the name of the shell or animal that it lived in.
