Darwin’s Fossils: Discoveries that shaped the theory of evolution

Darwin’s Fossils: Discoveries that shaped the theory of evolution

Charles Darwin’s voyage on the HMS Beagle was a journey that would revolutionise our understanding of the natural world and our place in it.


The magisterial work it spawned, The Origin of Species, is widely associated with the flora and fauna of the Galápagos Islands. Less well known is Darwin’s passion for geology and how his fossil discoveries in South America demonstrated the relationship between extinct lifeforms and living species and so shaped his theory of evolution.


This is the story of those fossil-hunting adventures in the 1830s, the pioneering science behind the fossils he found, and how these remarkable discoveries played a crucial role in forging Darwin’s revolutionary ideas.
