Description (see definition): Valley, 0.7 mi long in a N-S direction, extending from Lewis Pass (q.v.) to Grytviken in Cumberland Bay, South Georgia. It was first surveyed and named "Bores Dal" by the Swedish Antarctic Expedition (SwedAE) under Nordenskjold, 1901-04, but the form Bore Valley has since become established. The discovery by J. Gunnar Andersson, of the Swedish Antarctic Expedition (SwedAE), of numerous traces of a former ice covering, proving that ice had once filled the entire valley, led to the name. Bore is the Swedish word for Boreas, the Greek god of the north wind. Maidalen, to the N of Lewis Pass, was originally considered to be a part of Bore Valley but has since been determined to be a seperate valley.
