Captain Scott's Lost Photos From South Pole Expedition Unveiled

Previously unseen photographs from Captain Scott's doomed 1911 expedition to the South Pole have been discovered, some of which were taken by the ill-fated explorer himself.

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.
