Published on July 5th, 2017 | by admin0
The painting of a Tree Creeper was in a hut built by Norwegian explorers and later used by the Scott expedition.
The image was found in a pile of papers covered in mould and penguin excrement.
It is believed to be by British scientist Dr Edward Wilson, who died on the ill-fated Scott expedition to the South Pole in 1912.
