Caption: Jurassic fossil-bearing rock strata. Crumbling strata in Jurassic, fossil bearing cliffs between Lyme Regis and Charmouth, Dorset, UK. It was in these cliffs that major fossil finds were made by Mary Anning in the 18th and early 19th centuries, contributing to the founding of palaeontology. The finds included the first discovery of the skeleton of a plesiosaur in 1824 and the first discovery of the skeleton of a pterosaur in 1828, both made by Mary Anning.
