Northern Party Antarctic expedition. The six members of the Northern Party with a laden sledge on their return to Cape Evans during the British Antarctic Expedition (1910-1913), also known as the Terra Nova Expedition. Led by Robert Falcon Scott, a shore party of 33 spent two seasons exploring on and around the Ross Ice Shelf. The Northern Party landed in Victoria Land in February 1911. Marooned by pack ice, they barely survived in an ice cave in the winter of 1912 on Inexpressible Island. Forced to return by land, they arrived back on 7 November 1912 to find that Scott and four others had died in March 1912 on their return from the South Pole.
