10h 17min, jan 2, 1809 y - Darwin born in a conservative era (1809)

Description:

While born to a family of "freethinkers," Charles Darwin's birth comes at a time of social conservatism in Britain. Britain is at war with France, and evolution is an idea linked to French radicals and revoluntionaries. In the early 19th century there is no such thing as a professional scientist; the teenaged Darwin, a passionate hunter and beetle collector, plans to become a country parson and quietly pursue his interest in nature.
