Today, we celebrate Ada Lovelace Day.

It is actually a celebration of all women in all fields of science.

I’m very glad there’s a site like Trowelblazers, that reminds us of all the brilliant women in archaeology, palaeontology, and geology.

So check out some fossils at some point today. And even if you couldn’t visit a museum or park this National Fossil Day, ancient creatures will be glad to see you whenever you can meet them at a museum or other venue of your choice.
