Charles Darwin: the Shropshire Lad who transformed thought

Charles Darwin was born in Shrewsbury in 1809. He was the grandson of two members of the Lunar Society, Erasmus Darwin and Josiah Wedgwood, and had a varied education at Shewsbury School, Edinburgh University and Christ's College Cambridge. His influence on the history of scientific thought is explored in this talk by Dr John Cartwright formerly of the University of Chester.
