Discover the past, present and future impact of canines on human life at this exclusive out of hours event

This event provides exclusive access to the Scott Polar Research Institute out of hours for a networking reception of light canapés and drinks, while deep in doggie discussions.

Dogs have long been considered ‘man's best friend'. Most agree that by 15,000 BC dogs were truly domesticated and were our companions long before farming. Since, dogs have played many roles throughout the ages: guards, hunters, pack animals, companions. This event will highlight how dogs have played a role in human life in the past, present and future, featuring a captivating talk on dog sledging in the Arctic and Antarctic by Dr Peter Clarkson MBE.
