The photos, which depict scenes from the Terra Nova Expedition as it travelled the Antarctic, were acquired by the Scott Polar Research Institute in spring this year. People have known of the existence of Scott's photographs, but they've been thought to be missing for nearly 100 years.

They have gone on display this week at the University of Cambridge's Polar Museum, alongside poignant images of Scott taken by Herbert George Ponting, the professional photographer who went along to capture the expedition.
