The Heroic Era (end of the 19th century to the early 1920s) saw the Antarctic continent became the focus of intensive scientific and geographical exploration, with sixteen major expeditions being launched from eight different countries. Scott, Amundsen, Shackleton and Mawson are best known, but Borchgrevink, Drygalski, Nordenskjold, Larsen, Charcot, Filchner and Shirase are among others who also ventured into the icy unknown, each with their own story of tragedy and triumph. Hedgehog House photographers have captured images of the objects they left behind.
