The Oxfordshire Museum examines how the discoveries of British naturalist, explorer, geographer, anthropologist and biologist Alfred Russel Wallace were informed by the places in which he lived.
Many people believe that Wallace (1823-1913) conceived the theory of evolution through natural selection independently of Charles Darwin, in 1858.
He is also credited with exploring uncharted regions of the Amazon and was a leading authority on the wildlife of Malaysia and Indonesia.
The exhibition features original scientific material collected by Wallace from his field trips and studies around the world.
