Caption: Terra Nova Antarctic exploration. Expedition members haul sledges of fodder unloaded from The Terra Nova during the British Antarctic Expedition (1910-1913). Also known as the Terra Nova Expedition, the primary expedition objectives were scientific. Led by Robert Falcon Scott, the shore party of 34 (including 17 ponies and 33 dogs) landed at Cape Evans in January 1911. They spent two seasons exploring on and around the Ross Ice Shelf. Terra Nova and the ship's party of 32 carried out oceanographic research. Scott and four others died in 1912 returning from their attempt to be the first to reach the South Pole. Photograph by Herbert George Ponting.
