Conserving temporary structures of historical importance is hard, and performing such work in the harsh climate of the Antarctic is even harder. Of course, dedicated researchers and conservators from the Natural History Museum in Britain would never shy away from such a challenge, and this splendid sites offers insight into their work on this project. Essentially, the team is working on conserving the huts left by Ernest Shackleton during his 1908 expedition to the Antarctic, and visitors can read their team weblog, learn about the history of the huts, and also read up on the dilemmas faced by the team as they work on this heritage project. The site is rounded out by a fine selection of images of Antarctica (including shots of icy landscapes and penguins) and detailed maps of the continent and Ross Island.
