Photos and notebook discovered in/near Terra Nova expedition hut

Here is an interesting article about photos and a notebook discovered last year in and near one of Scott's Terra Nova expedition huts. The photo negatives were from Shackleton's 1914-1917 expedition when he used Scott's hut. The notebook is quite amazing to have survived as it was found outside. It contains notes on photos taken during Scott's 1910-1913 expedition. The notes were able to be matched to the photos held by the Scoot Polar Research Institute.
