You are invited to the Zoology Museum in Cambridge for an exclusive talk on the Jenyns Beetle Voyage Project.
As a leading 19th century naturalist the Reverend Leonard Jenyns was offered a place on the Beagle by Captain Fitzroy. He turned it down and recommended Charles Darwin. Jenyns and Darwin had the same fascination with entomology, especially beetles, and their relationship lasted well into their lives. Jenyns’s collection is housed at the Zoology Museum and the 'Jenyns Beetle Project' is designed to catalogue his collections for the first time. Our group will meet at the museum entrance for a 10.30am start, this will be followed with a talk about Jenyns and then a tour of many items collected by Jenyns and Darwin which are not on public display. Lunch in the museum refectory with our speaker and guide, Matthew Hayes will follow (the choice of meal and payment will be up to each individual). The cost of the event (including lunch for our speaker and guide) is £9.50. Numbers are limited to 20. A waiting list will be in operation if this number is exceeded.
