To the far corners of the Earth

- Speaker Dr Robb Robinson


 15 Whitefriargate, Hull, East Riding of Yorkshire, HU1 2ER


Hull people and ships have an enduring engagement with all things polar that stretches back at least as far as the 16C if not earlier


They have left their mark in many ways, not least in the nomenclature of the distant ice-bound regions that they have visited. and the waters on which they sailed. Indeed a host of geographical features including islands, bays, mountains and even ice tongues and the like are named after Hull and East Riding seafarers, scientists and explorers or the vessels on which they voyaged.


This illustrated talk examines some fascinating aspects of local involvement and achievements in a variety of ventures in and around the frozen extremes of our planet.
