British Antarctic (Nimrod) Expedition 1907 – 1909 

77° 33’ 10.7” S, 166° 10’ 6.5” E Cape Royds, Ross Island

After two years of planning, in 2004 the NZ Antarctic Heritage Trust commenced a major four-year conservation programme to secure and weatherproof the building and conserve the 6000+ artefacts. Work was completed in 2008 on time and to budget and an annual maintenance and monitoring plan was put in place.

The conservation team at Shackleton's hut at Cape Royds has excavated five crates of whisky and brandy.
