    Original details
    Type description sailing ship
    Year/Period 1817

    Most sailing ships achieved fame in seafaring history through sea battles, but some gained it through exploration. On 27th December 1831, H.M.S. Beagle, a brig built in 1817, sailed from Devenport, England on a five year expedition round the globe. At the invitation of the Captain and naturalist Robert Fitzroy, the young natural scientist Charles Darwin was also on board. The observations made by him during the voyage on the evolution of life and the origin of species formed the basis of the Darwin Theory, which made him one of the most important scientists of all time. This historic voyage went via Brazil, Chile, the Galapagos Islands, Tahiti, New Zealand and the Cape of Good Hope and back to England, where they arrived on 2.10.1836. Many species were brought back with them as specimens of their revolutionary findings.
