Charles Darwin Discovery

"Treasure Trove" of Charles Darwin's Long-Lost Fossils Discovered

"I can't resist a mystery, " said Falcon-Lang, "so I pulled one open. What I found inside made my jaw drop."

Falcon-Lang had stumbled upon 314 beautiful glass slides. Preserved within each one was a thin, translucent sheet of fossilized plant or fungus. "Almost the first slide I picked up was labeled ‘C. Darwin Esq.' This turned out to be a piece of fossil wood collected by Darwin during his famous Voyage of the Beagle in 1834, " he said. [The specimen, a piece from a 40-million-year-old fossil tree from Chiloe Island, Chile, is featured here.] So far, 17 of the rediscovered specimens have been verified as Darwin's.
