Antarctic Explorer's Notebook Found And Restored After 100 Years In Ice | IFLScience

Antarctic Explorer's Notebook Found And Restored After 100 Years In Ice | IFLScience | Antarctica | Scoop.it
Over a century ago, legendary British explorer Captain Robert Scott and his polar party journeyed to the South Pole to investigate the wildlife of this poorly studied continent. Although Scott and four colleagues never returned home due to deplorable weather conditions, six other men comprising the Northern Party managed to survive the harsh winter of 1912. Incredibly, more than a hundred years later, artifacts of this ill-fated expedition are still being unearthed, including one of the survivor’s notebooks.
