Launch Slideshow

This collection of texts, photographs, illustrations and objects provides a fascinating and moving insight into the Heroic Age of Antarctic Exploration, particularly the Discovery and the ill-fated Terra Nova expeditions led by Robert Falcon Scott. It includes zoological drawings, sea shanties, and even cutlery used on the expedition, giving an unparalleled glimpse into the experiences of some of the first men to reach the South Pole. Books & Manuscripts specialist Cecilie Gasseholm gives us some of the background to these compelling objects.
