Beesker recommends 'Cool Antarctica' as the world's
best website on Antarctica
ABOUT 'COOL ANTARCTICA'
Cool Antarctica website is
produced by Paul Ward, a teacher in Chatteris, Cambridgeshire, England. He spent
over two years in Antarctica from 1985 to 1987 as a marine biologist with the
British Antarctic Survey.
The Cool Antarctica website is organised into the following main sections:
Antarctica Pictures, Antarctica Cruise, Facts, History, Ugg Sale, Store,
Clothes, Whales, Books, DVDs, Schools, Boots, Forum, and Falklands Islands
Dependencies Survey (the original name of the British Antarctic Survey).
The History of Antarctica section starts with the Greeks in 350 BC, who first
recognized the Antarctic. It covers the crossing by James Cook of the Antarctic
Circle in 1773, and the explorations of the Russian Captain Thaddeus
Bellingshausen in 1819 to 1821. It carries the history forward with accounts of
the explorations by Shackleton in 1907 to 1909, Roald Amundsen in 1911, and
Robert Scott in 1912.
