The National Maritime Museum celebrates International Polar Year 2007 with this series of talks by explorers, artists, historians and scientists.

Scott of the Antarctic and the Explorer as Hero – Maxwell Jones.
Maxwell Jones is Lecturer in Modern British History, University of Manchester, author of Last Great Quest: Captain Scott’s Antarctic Sacrifice (2003) and editor of Journals: Captain Scott’s Last Expedition (2005)


Return to the Arctic - Kari Herbert
This talk weaves together stories of native Inuit myth, historical exploration, family memoir and personal adventure, against the backdrop of the Arctic wilderness.
At 10 months, Kari was taken to the High Arctic by her father, pioneering explorer Sir Wally Herbert (the first undisputed man to walk to the North Pole) and mother, to live with a tribe of Polar Inuit on a remote island off the coast of NW Greenland. Kari has travelled ever since. She is an acclaimed writer and photographer. Her first book The Explorer’s Daughter, recounts her return to the High Arctic. She is currently writing her second book, Heart of the Hero: The Women Behind Polar Exploration
