Ammonite Is Going To Clean Up At Award Season

If you have ever heard the rhyme:

She sells seashells by the seashore,
The shells she sells are seashells, I’m sure.
So if she sells seashells on the seashore,
Then I’m sure she sells seashore shells.

Then you will be aware of Mary Anning. She was a pioneer, ahead of her time, in the prep and extraction of fossils. She is someone that never got the credit she deserved, at least in her lifetime. But in recent years people have coem to truly appreciate her work.

This new film has been criticized because it depicts Mary as gay. To be honest know one really knows if she was Gay, Bi, Straight or anything else. But when questioned about it the director had this to say:

I will reserve judgement till I see the film.

If you want to know more about Mary then I suggest you watch this video on her life.

She is a truly fascinating person and I for one am glad more people will know of her work.
