The Darwin Correspondence Project, sponsored by the University of Cambridge, places the 15, 000 letters written by Charles Darwin in an interestingly human light. Each of Darwin’s correspondents receives a full biographical treatment, as each of his many research interests is also covered as thoroughly as one could imagine. The interactive version of Darwin’s Emotion Experiment is especially entertaining, and the sheer prolific nature of Charles Darwin’s research and writing habits provides fertile ground for digital archiving.  The Darwin Project breaks down the evolutionist’s research as well as his professional and personal correspondents, publishers and illustrators. For anyone wanting to truly appreciate Darwin’s role in the history of human advancement, The Darwin Project catalogs and maps each facet of the visionary evolutionist’s life.
