Nares Expedition (1875)

Ed Armston-Sheret talks about the mysterious disease of scurvy: how it affected expeditioners and why it was so difficult to understand. Armston-Sheret is a PhD candidate at Royal Holloway University of London. He’s the author of “Tainted bodies : scurvy, bad food and the reputation of the British National Antarctic Expedition, 1901–1904,” published this year in the Journal of Historical Geography.
