    I know about the mammoths all too well. My brother loves Jefferson as much as he loves Napoleon and he hates it whenever I remind him that Jefferson had illegitimate kids. Anyway I think I read about Mary a long time ago.

    Loved this week’s story (also one on Tirgatao was superb)! :) Can you please, please, possibly do Queen Olga of Kievan Rus one day? She had a revenge style that would not look out of place in Game of Thrones! ^_^

    She’s in the book. :)

    Cannot wait to see her story! ^_^

    How was this something lighter, I’m crying a little

    Yeah, I didn’t realize how sad her story got until I really got into it. Sorry about that.

  • I used to work at the Natural History Museum in London. Everything in the marine fossils corridor was found by Mary Anning. I loved walking through it. The musuem has a couple of ladies that dress up as Mary Anning and tell visitors about her life. I got my picture taken with one of them once and was so excited!

    I would always try to get the little girls excited about Mary Anning and tell them about her and say that ‘girls can be dinosaur hunters too!’

    I’m not crying, you’re crying!
