Caption: Terra Nova Antarctic exploration. Expedition members using harnesses to haul and unload supplies from the ship Terra Nova in 1912 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 spent two seasons exploring on and around the Ross Ice Shelf. Scott then departed base cap on 1 November 1911 on his quest to be the first to reach the South Pole. Attempts to resupply and rescue Scott's polar party of five on their return journey failed. The bodies of Scott and his remaining men were found in November 1912.
