(Zoom open from 5.30pm)
Speaker: James Taylor
Topic: “Darwin and the Voyage of HMS Beagle, 1831-1836″


James’ talk focuses on the family and influences upon Charles Darwin and Captain Robert FitzRoy, the commander of HMS Beagle, and their participation in the celebrated second voyage of the ship that has shaped our lives.

FitzRoy paid for two artists, Augustus Earle and Conrad Martens, to paint the people and places encountered, and these images underpin the seafaring stories.
