Charles Darwin’s ground-breaking theory was published in 1859, set out in his book ‘On the Origin of Species.’ In it, he proposed a radical theory of evolution by natural selection. This was a major challenge to the foundations of western civilisation, one that made us re-think our place in the world. In 1871, he transformed our world-view once again through his ‘The Descent of Man’, arguing that humans shared a common ancestor with apes. His propositions were initially met with outrage from members of the Church of England, but this did not stop his work from becoming best-sellers, and by the 1870s the scientific community and much of the general public had accepted evolution as a fact.
