Google has celebrated the 215th anniversary of the birth of British palaeontologist Mary Anning with a special doodle.

Anning is best known for her work collecting fossils from the Jurassic period near her home in Lyme Regis Dorset.

Today's colourful Google Doodle shows her uncovering a dinosaur's fossilised remains.

Anning is recognised for contributing to fundamental changes in scientific thinking about prehistoric life.

Among her many discoveries was the first ever correctly identification skeleton of an ichthyosaur.

Despite being recognised globally for her work in the field, she was not - as a woman - eligible to join the Geological Society of London.

In 2010 Anning was included by the Royal Society in a list of the ten British women who have most influenced the history of science.

Born in Lyme Regis on 21st May 1799. Her father, a cabinetmaker, died when she was just 11.

Anning died of cancer, aged 47, on 9th March 1847.
