  • The British Antarctic Expedition 1898-1900 (leader Carsten Egeberg Borchgrevink) visited the Balleny Islands and examined a large stretch of the Victoria Land coast making a landing at Cape Adare. A party of ten men became the second to winter south of the Antarctic Circle and the first to winter on the Antarctic mainland. When biologist Nicolai Hanson died there in 1899 he became the first to be buried on Antarctica. The expedition ship Southern Cross reached a furthest south of 78°21' South in 1900 during her second voyage having wintered in New Zealand. Newnes Glacier, Victoria Land was named by Borchgrevink for George Newnes (newspaper proprietor) who funded much of the expedition. Janet's grandfather Louis Charles Bernacchi served as meteorologist and magnetometry observer, during the expedition. (EN)
