This month, the Natural History Museum, London opens a new exhibition documenting Captain Scott's ill-fated last polar exhibition, the Terra Nova. This exhibition brings to light many previously unseen artefacts from the expedition including clothing, tools, diaries, a life-size recreation of Scott's hut and more importantly, documentary photographs.
The waters of Deer Bay off Elef Ringnes Island, high in the Canadian Arctic are not a natural place for humans. For much of the year they are frozen solid. And yet this is where I lived and worked, April this year.
