How did he discovery his theory?
Charles Darwin sailed from Plymouth on December 27, 1831 on a journey that was to take him many thousands of miles. He sailed in a ship called the Beagle. The Beagle was not a big ship, it was only about 28 metres long and had to be home to 74 people for the whole voyage. For many of the early weeks at sea, Darwin was extremely sea-sick and could eat nothing but raisins. When they landed at Cape Verde he began to feel better, as he was able to go ashore and start noting, collecting, recording and observing the bird life, the natives, the plants and the landscape.
