Mary Leakey was known as the “cigar-smoking, whiskey-drinking” British archaeologist and anthropologist who excavated at various sites in East Africa, along with her husband Louis. One of her most famous excavations at Laetoli, Tanzania uncovered the famous trail of fossil hominid footprints which had been left in volcanic ash some 3.6 million years ago.
