Audio story: The Murmurous Paleoscope

The Murmurous Paleoscope by Dixon Chance.

The story accurately reflects a few elements of 19th century fossil
hunting culture: the importance of shales; the early women fossil
hunters (including Mary Anning, for whom the Lens in the story is
named); and the fossil “Bone Wars” of Othniel Marsh and Edward Cope,
which really did get violent and excessively paranoid.
