Beagle Laid Ashore

Beagle Laid Ashore
This ship played an important role in the history of science.

Print based on a drawing by Conrad Martens, etching published in: Francis Darwin, Life and Letters of Charles Darwin , p. 160, 1888. Conrad Martens' drawing has been engraved by Thomas Landseer and published in the year 1838 by H. Colburn in The Narrative of the Surveying Voyages of HMS Adventure and Beagle.

Date: 1834-04-16
Location: Tierra del Fuego, Santa Cruz river, 50.1125°S and 68.3917°W
That is the position calculated by Captain Robert FitzRoy (who had no GPS). The error was small. The drawing shows that the site must have been a river bank (50.13°S, 68.39°W?) near the calculated position.
