Glorious Days lecture series: Tom Griffiths

Tuesday 28 May 2013, 12:30pm to 1:30pm

Find out what was happening in Australia 100 years ago in our Glorious Days lecture series.

Join Professor Tom Griffiths as he discusses the role of Australians in Antarctica in 1913 – the adventure, misfortune, triumph and tragedy. Professor Griffiths tells the story of the young and hopeful men who set out to explore the frozen continent in the name of scientific curiosity. For Australians in Antarctica, 1913 was an unexpected year. It was a year of trauma and waiting – and of nightmares more than dreams.
