Book description Sited at the furthest limits of the Neolithic revolution and standing at the confluence of the two great sea routes of prehistory, Britain and Ireland are distinct from continental Europe for much of the prehistoric sequence. October 5 – Redrawing the geological map of South Wales — Professor John C. W. Cope, National Museum Wales, Cardiff.

Charles Robert Darwin FRS FRGS FLS FZS (/ ˈ d ɑːr w ɪ n /; 12 February – 19 April ) was an English naturalist, geologist and biologist, best known for his contributions to the science of evolution.

His proposition that all species of life have descended over time from common ancestors is now widely accepted, and considered a foundational concept in science.

Charles Darwin was born in Shrewsbury, Shropshire, England on 12 February at The Mount, the house his father built in along the River Severn. He was the fifth of six children of wealthy society doctor Robert Darwin and Susannah Darwin (née Wedgwood).He was the grandson of Erasmus Darwin on his father's side, and of Josiah Wedgwood on his mother's side.
