World of Wallace : Alfred Russel Wallace and his life in the field
Portrait of Alfred Russel Wallace

2013 saw the centenary of the death of naturalist Alfred Russel Wallace and the start of our World of Wallace toruing exhibition. Wallace is most well known for arriving at the Theory of Evolution by Natural Selection independently of Charles Darwin.

Alfred Russel Wallace grew up, and was educated, in Hertford before travelling extensively; exploring and mapping previously uncharted parts of the Amazon and becoming the world authority on the flora and fauna of Malaysia and Indonesia.

Please follow the links on our sidebar for more information about the project and Wallace himself. Make sure you keep checking our website, or follow us on facebook or twitter to keep up-to-date with everything that's happening.
