Box Containing 100-Year-Old Negatives Discovered In Frozen Antarctic Ice

Over one hundred years ago a group of explorers, the Ross Sea Party, set out on a mission to Antarctica to set up supply depots for the famous explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton.

The group’s photographer took many photos during their expedition but accidentally left some of the unprocessed negatives behind sometime between 1914 to 1917.┬áThese never-before-seen negatives have been unearthed in one of the shacks they visited, preserved in a block of ice.

During this expedition, their ship floated away due to a blizzard. When they were finally rescued, three men had already lost their lives.
