Does anyone know if there has been a book written on the life of Mary 
Anning?  *Iguanodon* was first discovered by the wife of Gideon 
Mantell while he was looking after some patients.  These are just two 
dinosaur and related female palaeontologists.  There are many in 
other fields of palaeontology too.
