The hardship and tragedies of these three expeditions make for almost unbearable reading. Peter FitzSimons’s Mawson and the Ice Men of the Heroic Age: Scott, Shackleton and Amundsen and Mawson’s Forgotten Men edited by Heather Rossiter both make compelling reading. They talk to Richard Glover.\n\n\n\nParticipants: Heather Rossiter, Peter FitzSimons AM, Richard Glover (facilitator)\nCost: Free, no bookings\nDisabled Access: Yes\nHearing Loop : No DTSTAMP:20120519T043000Z DTSTART:20120519T043000Z DTEND:20120519T053000Z END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
