News: BOOK LAUNCH AT SHACKLETON AUTUMN SCHOOL

 

In association with the History Press the school is delighted to host the launch of 'From Ice Floes to Battlefields: Scott’s ‘Antarctics’ in the First World War' by Anne Strathie. 'From Ice Floes to Battlefields' draws on previously unpublished journals, letters and other archive material to throw new light on the Terra Nova expedition and on ‘what happened next’ to Scott’s ‘Antarctics’, men who had taken part in Scott’s 1910-13 Terra Nova expedition and, in several cases, in Shackleton’s Nimrod and Endurance expeditions.

The launch will take place at Athy Heritage Centre Museum at 8pm on Friday the 23rd October 2015
