Part of the Landscapes Below Speaker Series.

This talk explores the various roles that women have undertaken in furthering the science of geology. They have acted as teachers, researchers, collectors, illustrators and just occasionally photographers. The first female fellows of the geological society from 1919, Maria Ogilvie Gordon, Catherine Raisin, Ethel Skeat, Ethel Wood, Gertrude Elles and Margaret Crosfield, are an interesting group and came from a variety of backgrounds and different disciplines. Annie Greenly, Mary Johnson and Mary Anning will also feature.

Their contribution evaluated and their characters examined. They are the lost heroines of geology.
