“Were Captain Scott and his crew good explorers?”


In this History-led theme, we will learn about Captain Robert Falcon Scott. He was a Royal Navy officer and explorer who led two expeditions to the Antarctic regions: the Discovery expedition of 1901–1904 and the ill-fated Terra Nova expedition of 1910–1913. We will use artefacts and secondary sources to learn more about their journey and what went wrong for them.
