"the final episode in the Heroic Age of Antarctic Exploration"
This sentence (in the lead of this article) directly contradicts the lead sentence of the linked article Heroic Age of Antarctic Exploration. Given the ambiguity, something like "so-called Heroic age..." is probably preferable too. Adpete (talk) 02:23, 5 April 2017 (UTC)
The Heroic Age isn't a formally-defined epoch, so opinions may differ as to when it started and finished. However, the contradiction is within the Heroic Age article itself, which despite saying that the age finished in 1917, includes Shackleton-Rowett as the last on the list of expeditions. Shackelton-Rowett clearly belongs to that era, with many of the same personnel, a wooden ship etc. A slight tweaking of the wording should suffice, but I'd avoid "so-called" which has the whiff of fakery about it.
