Abstract/OtherAbstract:
This year, 2012, marks the 100th anniversary of Captain Scott his reaching the South Pole and of his death on the return journey. There has been much discussion on the cause of death of Scott and his colleagues and, in particular, whether he died of scurvy. There has probably been even more discussion on the cause of death of Edgar Evans, one of Scott's companions. This paper reviews the topic.
