This year sees the centenary of the death of naturalist Alfred Russel Wallace. Wallace is most well known for arriving at the Theory of Evolution by Natural Selection independently of Charles Darwin.
Alfred Russel Wallace grew up, and was educated, in Hertford before travelling extensively; exploring and mapping previously uncharted parts of the Amazon and becoming the world authority on the flora and fauna of Malaysia and Indonesia.
