You know what awesome lady was born today? This one
She was a paleoanthropologist and she found shit like this
She was married to Louis Leakey and he got credit for a lot of the stuff she did but she didn’t really mind all that much. She didn’t want the public recognition and she was kind of just using Louis for his connections in Africa.
While he was giving lectures she was out in the field getting shit done like discovering 15 new species of animal and an entire genus.
