About this event


Was it nature or nurture that created a world-class scientist?

This illustrated talk by the founder of the Darwin Festival reflects on Darwin's radical grandparents, his early upbringing and education, the dramatic landscape of Shropshire and the influence of the Unitarian movement. All of which combined to make the ideal candidate for Naturalist on the Voyage of the Beagle.

Part of this year's DarwIN Shrewsbury Festival.
