Researchers at the University of Cambridge’s Scott Polar Research Institute have started blogging and tweeting Captain Robert Falcon Scott’s diary entries, written exactly 99 years ago. Started yesterday, the entries will follow Scott’s ill-fated final expedition across Antarctica and are timed to coincide with the centenary of the trip. The idea is to allow modern readers to relate more easily with what the group were going through. Captain Scott and his team died on the journey back from the South Pole in 1912.
