SHACKLETON NEWS ARCHIVE
CONFERENCE, EVENING RECEPTION AND PRIVATE VIEWING
Tickets are £75 (£60 if booked before 31 May) from 01420 511275. The venue will be Gilbert White's House and Garden and the newly opened Oates Collection at Selborne, Hants. Gilbert White (1720-93) is of course best known for his magnificent work The Natural History and Antiquities of Selborne, published in 1789.
The new galleries tell the story of Captain Oates's early life and his distinguished service in the Boer War, and on the Scott Expedition of 1910-12. The exhibition is very well documented and photographed, and the new galleries have numerous artefacts, photographs and documents – many not seen before – from the expedition.
