The Newest Continent


This week, Palace Green Library are launching their exciting Antarctica exhibition. It will cover the mind-blowing discovery, exploration and ongoing work on the newest continent – including contributions from the North East

The exploration into the North East’s links with the continent will cover everything from Captain Cook’s work to that of Durham University scientists today. Plus there’ll be two fascinating displays on loan from the Royal Geographical Society.

They will include ‘With Scott to the Pole’ which features historic photographs of Captain Robert Falcon Scott’s tragic journey in 1910 and ‘Antarctic Witness’ which looks at Ernest Shackleton’s 1914-16 expedition. Accompanying the exhibition there’ll be public talks, events for schools and family activities too.
