CHARLES DARWIN AND THE VOYAGE OF HMS BEAGLE ON TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 20TH at 2.30 pm
In 1831 Charles Darwin and Captain Robert FitzRoy, the commander of HMS Beagle, embarked on their celebrated voyage which enabled Darwin to collect vital evidence for his ground-breaking publication ‘On the Origin of Species’.
FitzRoy paid for two artists, Augustus Earle and Conrad Martens, to paint the people and places encountered, and these images underpin the series of sensational seafaring stories.
OUR LECTURER JAMES TAYLOR studied at the Universities of St Andrews and Manchester, and is a former curator of paintings, drawings and prints, at the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich. He is also a lecturer and ships’ historian on board cruise ships. His lectures are always enthusiastically received by our members.
Join us in Betchworth, or by zoom from your home, on Tuesday, September 20th at 2.30 pm for this stimulating, illustrated lecture. It is free for members but do come as a visitor for £5.
