The box is marked 'Colman's Wheat Meal'. The date is 7 January 1911, and the expedition shore party had landed here at Cape Evans three days earlier. Also known as the Terra Nova Expedition, the primary expedition objectives were scientific. Led by Robert Falcon Scott, a shore party of 33 spent two seasons exploring on and around the Ross Ice Shelf. Scott and four others died in 1912 returning from their journey to the South Pole.
