Charles Darwin at Down House
A Catalyst article looking at a day in the life of Charles Darwin at his home in Kent. Much of Charles Darwin’s life after his return from the Beagle voyage was spent at Down House in Kent. He moved here in September 1842 and the article describes the important work such as Darwin’s Theory of Evolution by Natural Selection and the dissections that were done in the study. The article includes a timetable of how Darwin spent his day and illustrations and a key to the rooms' contents.
