Historical Preservation in Antarctica

Here is a Great Google Tech talk on Antarctica. Having been in both Shackleton’s and Scott’s huts, I am of course a big advocate of preserving not only these sites but in preserving the last great unspoiled continent on Earth.

Well worth watching. It’s also nice to hear a Christ Church accent again!

What an incredible tragedy if these places and this continent is lost.
