Caption: Terra Nova Antarctic explorers. Members of the British Antarctic Expedition (1910-1913) carrying out work in the expedition hut at Cape Evans during the long Antarctic winter. This group of five (Apsley Cherry-Garrard at typewriter) are reading, typing, writing, and studying a map of Antarctica. 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 and four others died in 1912 returning from their attempt to be the first to reach the South Pole. Photographed on 8 June 1911 by Herbert George Ponting.
