Royston Pike Lectures: David Edwards, Antarctica

Royston Pike Lectures
David Edwards, Antarctica
Antarctic dreams

Packed into a small ex-Russian spy ship, and accompanied by some of the region’s top geologists and climate scientists, geologist and explorer David Edwards immersed himself in this beautiful, thought provoking and precious wilderness. As well as capturing stunning images of the landscape and wildlife, Dave also retraced part of Shackleton’s epic journey across South Georgia. Antarctica has gripped our imagination for hundreds of years and has inspired
artists, scientists, explorers and naturalists for generations. David explores why this very special place is still relevant today.

David studied geology at Edinburgh University and has since worked as a geology tutor on the island of Arran, for the Grand Canyon National Park and for the Royal Geographical Society as an expedition advisor. He has explored Monserrat, Victoria BC’s Pacific seafloor, Antarctica, Botswana, and takes geological groups to Iceland and Italy’s Bay of Naples. He tutors two university courses. David was awarded Honorary Fellowship of the Royal Scottish Geographical Society and is a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and the Higher Education Academy. He has contributed to BBC Radio 4’s ‘Excess Baggage’ travel show.
