New Charles Darwin / Darwin 200 related stamp blog

This is a weblog  for a new Darwin 200 related stamp site celebrating his life, times and commemoration in postage stamps. It is a joint project with Sandie Robb at Edinburgh Zoo, RZSS, Mark Norris Newquay Zoo and the Association of Scottish Philatelic Societies, ASPS and Scottish Philatelic Trade Assocaition, SPTA. We have published a book for educational use, initially in Scottish and Cornish schools, entitled ‘Charles Darwin: A Celebration in Stamps’. It will be launched on 24th November 2009, the 150th anniversary of the publication of ‘On the Origin of Species’. It is also part of Darwin200, the bicentenary celebrations.

The weblog will have lots of ideas, new scans and updates for using the publication and ideas for teaching using stamps. Watch this space for more.
