Much of the food that was eaten was tinned as somewhat
ironically frozen food was in it's infancy in the first

frozen and with modern transportation, proper fresh food
is not such a rarity.

food the early explorers had, seal meat, penguin meat, wild
birds eggs etc. are completely off the menu for today's
