Abstract

Britain has a tradition of exploration, particularly so through its seafaring. Initially the UK's aristocracy developed a thirst for recreational adventuring. During the Romantic period, much text and poetry was made about the beauty of the mountains and the significance of wandering through the countryside. These were largely as a counter to the considerable industrialisation that was occurring. The first Western ascent of Everest was attempted in 1923 by two Englishmen, Mallory and Irving.
