New Podcast – Frozen in Time: Scott’s Antarctic Legacy
Scott’s Terra Nova hut has a history steeped in both triumph and tragedy that is proudly on display at Cape Evans.
Step inside and you will find the building in good health with more than 11,000 artefacts left behind by expeditions of Scott and Shackleton carefully conserved.
That is due to the expert conservation work undertaken by Antarctic Heritage Trust, who in 2007 began a seven year journey to conserve the wooden hut and the artefacts left behind by expeditions of both Scott, and Shackleton.
Join the Trust’s Chief Operations Officer, Francesca Eathorne as she visits the hut, speaks to the conservation experts and hears how they worked within the world’s most extreme environment to save this important piece of Antarctic history.
Our winter-over team continue their artefact conservation work at Scott Base, Antarctica.
Our team of four conservators, Jane, Bill, Conor and Shannon, are working hard on an interesting project retreating artefacts from the huts of the early explorers – including Robert Falcon Scott and Sir Ernest Shackleton.
