Sir Ernest Shackleton’s granddaughter has been in Cambridge to open a new exhibition about his epic rescue mission.
One hundred years ago he and his team had set out to cross the Antarctic via the South Pole but their ship, Endurance, got stuck and sank.
Shackleton made an 800 mile voyage in a lifeboat with five other men, reaching a whaling station at South Georgia. Help was sent and the whole team was rescued.
The exhibition, at the Scott Polar Research Institute, features papers and equipment from the expedition, including the sextant used to navigate the lifeboat.
