“The Fossil Detectives”
Did St Hilda rescue Whitby from a plague of snakes by turning them into fossils? Or perhaps Yorkshire’s Spider Man, Martin Lister, had the right answer – that God had planted fossils in the rocks at the Creation? The mystery was eventually solved after Mary Anning, a young girl from Lyme Regis, began digging up skeletons of large extinct reptiles. Although some Victorian scientists claimed her discoveries as their own, she provided clinching evidence for evolution and became an international expert in her own right.
