Items from Scott's Final Expedition to Antarctica to Be Auctioned in September 2010

Next month (September 2010) some items used by Charles Seymour Wright on Robert Falcon Scott's final expedition to Antarctica will be auctioned off in London. Wright was part of the support team of Scott's fatal South Pole journey. He was part of the search party that looked for Scott and the missing men when they failed to return from the pole. Wright was the one to find the tip of the tent and Scott and the two others frozen.

The items to be auctioned include a sledging kit, skis, scientific instruments, manuscripts, and photographs. The items will be auctioned off by Christie's on September 22, 2010.
