Who was Charles Darwin?

Who was Charles Darwin?

It’s not easy keeping up with history, it changes every, well every second really, so when I started to research Charles Darwins life it came as little surprise to me that there is a great deal of very complicated material out there. After all, discovering and defining the evolution of evolution was never going to be quick.

I was searching for some top level info, I didn’t want to read ‘The Origin of Species’ cover to cover if I am honest, so I was looking for something a little more Twitter and a little less Trinity College.

I found a load of information, so here is my Top 5 links on Mr Darwin for someone with an attention span of, well, of me really. I may have evolved from a knatt. ‘I think.’
