1 June marks the anniversary of James Clark Ross‘s arrival at the North Magnetic Pole during his expedition in 1831. Ross subsequently led expeditions to the Antarctic and can be seen in the above picture planting the Union Jack on the ice shelf.

The Look and Learn picture library has many more images of icy exploration at both the North Pole and South Pole and of some of the creatures explorers encountered, from polar bears to penguins.
