Summary

Summary

This is a history of the 10-gun brig and survey ship, 'HMS Beagle'. It became famous for her survey voyages under Commander Robert Fitzroy, especially once Charles Darwin, a passenger on the second expedition, wrote the 'On the Origin of Species', which was based on studies undertaken during the voyage.
