An historical chronology of all Antarctic regions compiled during 25 years at the Scott Polar Research Institute, University of Cambridge, by its former Archivist. This book lists the voyages to the far southern parts of the Earth, in particular to Antarctica, from 700 BC to the present. Detailed entries for expeditions and related historical events provide a thorough and useful guide to the history of the Antarctic and its surrounding territories. Maps and plates are included to show the development of knowledge of the far south, the locations of places mentioned in the text, and events of several selected expeditions.
