Dr Edward Wilson (1872-1912) and Lieutenant Henry 'Birdie' Bowers (1883-1912) died with Scott on the way back from the South Pole. The final expedition of British Antarctic explorer Captain Robert Falcon Scott (1868-1912) left London on 1 June 1910 bound for the South Pole. The Terra Nova Expedition, officially the British Antarctic Expedition (1910-1913), included a geologist, a zoologist, a surgeon, a photographer, an engineer, a ski expert, a meteorologist and a physicist among others. Scott wished to continue the scientific work that he had begun when leading the Discovery Expedition to the Antarctic in 1901-04. He also wanted to be the first to reach the geographic South Pole. Scott, accompanied by Dr Edward Wilson, Captain Lawrence Oates, Lieutenant Henry Bowers and Petty Officer Edgar Evans, reached the Pole on 17 January 1912, only to find that the Norwegian expedition under Amundsen had beaten them to their objective by a month. Delayed by blizzards, and running out of supplies, Scott and the remainder of his team died at the end of March. Their bodies and diaries were found eight months later.

'The Nilometer (measurer of inundations) at the first cataract, Egypt', 1905.Artist: Underwood & Underwood

'The Nilometer (measurer of inundations) at the first cataract, Egypt', 1905. 'On the southeast side of Elephantine Island is this interesting device for measuring the inundations. After ages of use the ancient instrument was cleaned out and restored to service by Ismail Pacha in 1870. It is very important at each stage of the inundation to know whether the rise is equalling that of good years, or whether it is likely to fall short and cause famine and distress.' Stereoscopic card. Detail. From a series called Egypt Through the Stereoscope, text by James H Breasted.
