The notebook of George Murray Levick, a photographer and surgeon who joined explorer Robert Falcon Scott's final expedition to Antarctica from 1910-1913, was found in ice. The notebook, which provides information about photographs taken of Scott, was discovered in January 2013 at the Cape Evans base after summer snow melt surrounding a building exposed it.
