Terra Nova Hut on Cape Evans

December 20, 2012
Inside Captain Scott's Terra Nova Hut on Cape Evans. The hut was build in 1911 by members of the British Antarctic Expedition (Terra Nova Expedition) and used as base for the trek to South Pole from which Scott and four of his team members never returned. The hut is remarkably well preserved but is currtenly undergoing restoration by the Antarctic Heritage Trust to protect it from further decay. The kitchen area on the left is one of the many areas inside and outside the hut that are being worked on. The hut is part of the 100 most endagered sites on the World Monuments Watch List. A remarkable place to be to say the least. Credit: NASA/Michael Studinger
