This year marked Charles Darwin’s 200th birthday. Without doubt, the most definitive site dedicated to the scientist is The Complete Work of Charles Darwin Online. This huge site includes nearly 80,000 pages of text and nearly 200,000 images. The wildlife illustrations are splendidly reproduced.
His publications such as Origins of the Species can be read in their entirety, with the text alongside scans of the original pages. The site is also home to manuscripts, notebooks, diaries, timeline and a biography. This is a fascinating resource to learn about the man and his work.
