Information on the location
The HMS Beagle was a Cherokee-class 10-gun brig-sloop of the Royal Navy. The vessel was launched on May 11th, 1820, from the Woolwich Dockyard on the River Thames. In July of the same year, she took part in a fleet review celebrating the coronation of King George IV of the United Kingdom, and for that occasion is said to have been the first ship to sail completely under the old London Bridge. She was then adapted as a survey barque and took part in three survey expeditions. On the second voyage, a young naturalist named Charles Darwin was on board; the pivotal role this voyage played in forming his scientific theories made the HMS Beagle one of the most renowned ships in history.
