Replica Sledge Model

The Polar Museum, Scott Polar Research Institute, University of Cambridge

A commission for the Scott Polar Research Institute Cambridge, this miniature sledge is a replica of a model made by second-in-command Lieutenant Edward ‘Teddy’ Evans on Captain Robert Falcon Scott's British Antarctic Terra Nova Expedition 1910-13. ⁠

The sledges load includes a pyramid tent and poles, sledging boxes, a shovel, a pick-axe, a rope, a sledging wheel and fuel cans.⁠ It's fascinating to imagine the materials Teddy might have used to make this and the tools he might have fashioned as he whiled away the hours.⁠
