Speaker:  Neale Webb

Desperate to conquer the frozen frontier, Ernest Shackleton (1874–1922) undertook four dangerous journeys to Antarctica, including his famous failure-turned-successful survival mission on the Endurance.

One hundred years after Shackleton’s death, Neale Webb will provide a unique insight on the life and extraordinary times of his Explorer and Adventurer Relation Sir Ernest Shackleton.

2014 to 2017 marked the Centenary Years of the Endurance Expedition. The Centenary of the Heroic Age of Antarctic Exploration has given rise to much research, analysis and reflection about this human endeavour, survival and achievements in the harshest of conditions.
