BREAKING THE ICE
Before the world had heard of Scott and Shackleton, another explorer hatched a plan to spend a year in Antarctica. He was Carsten Borchgrevink, and he and his team proved it was possible for humans to survive the Antarctic winter.
Antarctic Heritage Trust is grateful for the funding support received for its work at Cape Adare, particularly from the Norwegian Government. We would also like to thank Canterbury Museum for use of its facilities, Antarctica New Zealand and the Chinese Antarctic Research Expedition for logistical support, and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade and the Ministry for Primary Industries for their assistance with permitting so the site could be accessed and artefacts removed temporarily.
