7 Sep (Mon): Talk on "In Darwin's pocket: The voyage of the beagle from Darwin's field notebooks"

Another record exists of Darwin’s voyage that has remained almost unknown until recently.
Darwin’s pocket field notebooks reveal the intimate day-by-day life of Darwin as a practicing naturalist in the field, in the saddle, and on the way to becoming a highly experienced naturalist and theorist. The specimens and evidence that eventually convinced Darwin that life evolves were first recorded in these remarkable documents. They throw new light and detail on one of the most remarkable expeditions in the history of science.

Speaker: John van Wyhe, Director, the Complete Work of Charles Darwin Online, University of Cambridge, London
