Opening paragraph:
People from Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire played a significant role in the ‘Heroic Age’ of Antarctic Exploration (1897-1922). Clements Markham, the President of the Royal Geographical Society, who envisaged and oversaw the British National Antarctic Expedition (1901-1904), came from Stillingfleet, East Yorkshire. Much of the money required to fund the expedition was provided by Llewellyn Longstaff, owner of Hull’s Blundell’s Paints. And a key player in the celebrated Antarctic expeditions was Captain William Colbeck of Hull.
