The Antarctic Heritage Trust, a New Zealand based non-profit, is responsible for the archaeology and preservation of four heroic era expedition bases constructed on Ross Island in Antarctica. The bases include those of Borchgrevink’s Southern Cross Expedition (1898-1900), Captain Robert Falcon Scott’s Discovery Expedition (1901-1904), Sir Ernest Shackleton’s Nimrod Expedition (1907-1909), and Scott’s Terra Nova Expedition (1910-1913). In 2002, the Ross Sea Heritage Restoration Project was launched in an effort to document and preserve these rare historic monuments. This lecture will discuss the archaeological and conservation challenges that the bases present.
