Remarkable Creatures

Tracy Chevalier's Remarkable Creatures made my top 10 list for 2010. It was fiction based on fact about a pair of female archaeologists in England finding fossils in the early 19th century, the struggle to be a female scientist, and the excitement of scientific discovery. The story takes place in Lyme Regis, the town where Jane Austen's Persuasion took place. I've done a little more research on the area.
