A lecture to mark the centenary of one of the most celebrated expeditions of the Heroic Age of Antarctic exploration, that of Ernest Shackleton’s ‘Nimrod’ expedition. This reached within 100 geographical miles of the South Pole, conquered the South Magnetic Pole and made the first ascent of Mount Erebus, earning Shackleton his knighthood.
