A life less ordinary: born into a wealthy Victorian family, Robert Falcon Scott grew up in a large, rambling house in Devon surrounded by all the trappings of gentility. After joining the Navy, he appeared destined to follow a path of conformity. But both Scott's professional and personal lives turned out to be anything but predicable.

Reassessing Scott's final expedition: the influence of the Terra Nova expedition extends far beyond the myths that have built up around the race to the pole. Today, its significance can be felt all over the world in many walks of life, from science and exploration to music and even popular culture. Wilson, David M. Jan 1, 2012 1766
Scott of the Antarctic: from hero to villain? Scott has arguably been judged more often and more extensively than any other figure in British history.

Journey of discovery: the tragic deaths of Scott and his four companions on their return from the South Pole captured the world's imagination and have become the one, if not the only, thing associated with Scott's final expedition.

Simonsson, Elin Jan 1, 2012 1860
The lyrical adventurer: Apsley Cherry-Garrard is one of the unsung heroes of polar exploration.

Sara Wheeler recounts his story. Wheeler, Sara Jan 1, 2012 2740
A century of Captain Scott's hut: one hundred years after it was built, Scott's hut at Cape Evans still stands as a testament to a remarkable period in history.
