Their discoveries not only brought stores of information on topics ranging from ancient dinosaur fossils to life in Tibet, but also challenged the established roles of women in their fields. Kingsley set sail for Africa in 1893, embarking on a trip that would change not only her life, but the Victorian understanding of the dark continent as well. She traveled between the Niger and Congo rivers, was the first white woman to climb Mount Cameroon, and penned two books about her research in Africa.
