In 1912, Captain Scott from England led an expedition team to explore the Antarctic. Unfortunately, he and most of his team members were killed in a snowstorm in Antarctica. To commemorate this pioneer of exploration, New Zealand has set up statues in various places. There are several statues of him in Christchurch.
