Members of the British Antarctic Expedition, also known as Terra Nova, at the "Ice Cave." Laying bare their dejection and determination, the story of Robert Scott's bid to become the first to reach the South Pole is being told by the men themselves, 100 years after the ill-fated expedition.

Freeze Frame: The story of the Terra Nova expedition

The story of the Terra Nova expedition, explored through the letters, diaries and photographs of its members, is to be told during a once-in-a-lifetime exhibition at Cambridge University’s Polar Museum entitled, “These Rough Notes: Captain Scott’s Last Expedition.”

The exhibition tells the full story of the fateful Terra Nova expedition, not just through the famous journals and letters of Scott, Bowers, Evans, Oates and Wilson, who perished on their way back from the Pole, but through other members of the ship’s crew and shore party.
