The Irish in polar exploration – Dr Claire Warrior
Dr Claire Warrior is a Senior Curator at London’s Royal Museums Greenwich, and was one of the curators of the recent Polar Worlds gallery. Her PhD, from the Scott Polar Research Institute, University of Cambridge, was called ‘Rekindling histories: families and British polar exploration’, and looked at the ways in which family histories and national histories are entwined, and how and who we remember.
