    Re: Scott and the Lost Photos

    I wonder if the author "polar historian David M. Wilson" is any relation to Dr. Edward Wilson who died with Scott on the return from the pole.

    EDIT: He is...

    "The Lost Photographs of Captain Scott: Unseen Images from the Legendary Antarctic Expedition brings these brave men’s story to light, and does so with an incredible story of its own. Several years ago, as polar historian David M. Wilson was having a drink at a London salon, he was approached by an art collector by the name of Richard Kossow, who claimed that in 2001 he had purchased a portfolio of Antarctic photographs from the early 1900s. Wilson was already intrigued, but when Kossow informed him that the photos were from Robert Falcon Scott’s 1910-13 expedition, whose ill-fated crew featured Wilson’s great-uncle, Edward Wilson, and they were taken by Scott himself, Wilson nearly choked on his gin and tonic. The rest, as the saying goes, is history."

    They found Bowers, Scott and Wilson perfectly preserved in their tent. Keep in mind they were just a few miles from the supply depot that would have kept them alive, but were pinned down by a blizzard. They erected a cairn over their bodies still in their tent. I believe Oates has never been found nor has Evans, I believe.

    As it never thaws there, they are probably nearly as pristine as the day they died - with some dessication though. Almost definitely they are covered in ice and will never be found.

    Yeah, that is an amazing story; people who refused to die. Shackleton was THE Antarctic explorer after Amundson and Scott's race to the pole.
