Southern Lights


Southern Lights is the story of the British Graham Land Expedition (BGLE) led by John Rymill. Often described as the last of the heroic Antarctic expeditions, it was the first scientific venture to the southern continent to incorporate the use of modern technologies of communication and transport with traditional polar methods developed in the Arctic. The BGLE set a pattern of living and working in the Antarctic, which influenced all the expeditions that followed.

This account documents the voyage, the establishment of their bases, almost three years of work in the Antarctic Peninsula, and their developing expertise with aircraft, dog teams and polar fieldwork, which was to provide a model for future successful Antarctic exploration.

A must-read for any Antarctic enthusiast.
