In 1839, Darwin married Emma Wedgwood, his cousin, and they moved in to a house in  London where Darwin could focus on his work. Unfortunately, his health started to fail  mysteriously, so they moved to the country. They lived in a small village where Darwin  could find peace and quiet. After completing his work on the results of the  Beagle  voyage, still not ready to publish his thoughts on evolution, Darwin turned to what  seemed at first like a small, insignificant problem: the classification of different kinds of  barnacles. Darwin soon became entangled in the enormous project of dissecting and  describing all of the barnacles of the world for what eventually became a four- volume  work. Eight years later, in 1854, he finally finished, and was able to turn back to the  problem of evolution. In 1857, Alfred Russell Wallace sent Darwin a paper regarding the evolution of species.
