Wallace's legendary house on Ternate Island

Posted on May 22, 2013 by Jonathan - NaturePlus host

George Beccaloni searches for the location of Wallace's legendary house on the 'Spice Island' of Ternate, Indonesia. While living there in 1858, Wallace sent his essay on evolution by natural selection to Darwin in England. Wallace rented the house for 3 years and used it as his base, returning there after searching for rare specimens on distant islands. Many others have looked for it, so will George finally find it?
