Born February 12th 1809, Charles Darwin is best known as the father of evolutionary theory. His work including On The Origin of Species and The Descent of Man, formed the foundation of the theory of natural selection, which has shaped modern biological and anthropological thinking. We come together not only to celebrate the man, but to also celebrate the intellectual legacy that is the result of his early insights.
