100-Year-Old Notebook Found Frozen in Antarctic Ice Details Expedition

A 100-year-old notebook was found frozen in ice in Antarctica, at a base camp of British explorer Robert Falcon Scott, who died in 1912 while crossing Antarctica.

The notebook belonged to George Murray Levick, a surgeon and photographer who was part of Scott’s expedition.

"It's an exciting find," said Nigel Watson, director of the Antarctic Heritage Trust said, CNN reported. "The notebook is a missing part of the official expedition record. After spending seven years conserving Scott's last expedition building and collection, we are delighted to still be finding new artifacts."

The notebook, which was found at the expedition’s base camp at Cape Evans in January 2013, includes notes about photos took in 1911 at Cape Adare. It was conserved and returned to Antarctica as one of 11,000 artifacts at Cape Evans.

In it, Levick refers to a self-portrait he took while shaving and shots of his fellow crewmembers setting up surveying instruments and fish traps and sitting in kayaks, Discovery News reported.

Researchers digitized the pages and rebound the notebook for display.

Twitter users seemed excited about the find.
