Led by Robert Falcon Scott, a shore party of 33 spent two seasons exploring on and around the Ross Ice Shelf. The Northern Party of six landed on 17 February on Victoria Land. Marooned by pack ice they overwintered in 1912 in an ice cave on Inexpressible Island. Forced to return by land, they arrived back in November 1912 to find that Scott and four others had died in March 1912 on their return from the South Pole.
