Shackleton 100


Website to mark the centenary of Sir Ernest Shackleton's mission to the Antarctic, ultimately the mission was a failure but the incredible story of how Shackleton led the crew through survival in the most inhospitable place on Earth.

For over 300 days the crew were adrift in the Antarctic, living on ice floes, uninhabited islands and Shackleton led the most incredible rescue mission that ensured every single one of the 28 crew survived. Incredible boat journeys in hurricane winds and monstrous waves, a trek across uncharted mountain ranges and a crew that survived are all part of the greatest story of survival and leadership the world has known.

We will be adding more content throughout the centenary period, click here to add your email address to keep up to date with the Shackleton 100

Whilst the principle aim of this website is to introduce the incredible story of Shackleton and the Endurance mission to as wide an audience as possible, every effort has been made to ensure the information is accurate and from creditable sources.

However as with any information over 100 years old some facts get muddled over time and mistakes happen, so if there is anything you feel is not accurate or could be improved, please contact us and let us know.

We are also looking to collaborate with as many other groups also marking the centenary in different ways, if you are arranging an event or website, send us the information and we will happily exchange links to spread the word far and wide.

Keep checking the site for new events across the whole centenary period.
