Evans bunk Scott Hut

One of the hardest things for us to appreciate today is the minimal space and lack of privacy that was taken for granted by the early Antarctic explorers. Each man would have little more personal space than a modern single bed and a small shelf. These bunks are shown to be open, but usually a blanket or sheet would be fixed in place to give slightly more privacy.
