November’s first Maritime Forum will be mainly about mapping and exploration: ‘The Heroic Age of Antarctica’ concerns the brief but intense period from the 1890s to the First World War with the Scott, Shackleton, Mawson, Amundsen, and many other expeditions.

This Maritime Forum will be in English.
