Hidden Histories of Exploration

Hidden Histories of Exploration revealed the contribution of people such as Juan Tepano, Mohammed Jen Jamain, Sidi Mubarak Bombay, Nain Singh and Pedro Caripoco to the history of exploration. Visitors were able to find out about their role and its lasting significance, as illustrated in the paintings, books, maps photographs, artefacts and manuscripts of the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG).

Materials from Africa, Asia, the Arctic and the Americas were represented, with highlights including paintings by Thomas Baines, Catherine Frere's sketches of women on an African expedition, and film from the 1922 Everest expedition.

The exhibition took place at the Society between October and December 2009.
