On Charles Darwin Day, we look at a modern-day retelling of Darwin’s game-changing theory of evolution, which sparked fierce scientific and religious debate back in the 19th century.
Did you know that Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution caused quite a stir in the 19th century? At the time, many still believed the world and everything in it was created all at once. In On the Origin of Species, Sabina Radeva has retold Darwin’s original work along with her own beautiful illustrations. Here are a few of our favourite facts about evolution.
