Captain Scott's Antarctic expedition artefacts on show

Artefacts from Captain Scott's ill-fated Antarctic expedition are on show together for the first time in the UK.

The exhibition at Cambridge University's Scott Polar Research Institute Museum includes Scott's last journal, on loan from the British Library, and many items which have never been on public display.

These include scientist Edward Wilson's sketchbook, a hand-produced newspaper, and a sledge made by Lt Edward Evans.

These Rough Notes: Captain Scott's Last Expedition is on show until 5 May.
