Antarctic Heritage Trust

Monday, January 20th, 2014 by | Filed Under: Cool Sites

I couldn’t wait to share this site with you when I ran across it in my Internet explorations. I stumbled across these photos that were discovered in Antarctica from an expedition in Captain Scott’s hut. Taken between 1914 and 1917, the photos are a century old and provide a look into the past.

There are a few things in life I have a complete fascination with and the Antarctic is one of them. When you arrive at the site, you’ll find some general information about the race for Antarctica, and the Heritage Trust. You’ll also find the announcement of when the photographs were found and a link to a .PDF filled with more information about them. 

If you look at the right side of the page, you’ll find a link that will whisk you away to the photo gallery of photos they recovered and painstakingly restored. If you go to the photo gallery it isn’t  a collection of thumbnails, but rather a slideshow of the images that you can stop and play as you like, or use the right and left arrows to navigate more quickly through them or to page back to see one again. Underneath the image information about the image will load.

Below the slideshow player you’ll find images that link you to other slideshow galleries that will open up in a little pop up window. The tools to navigate through the images is the same. 

At the top of the page you’ll find a navigation strip featuring the categories About Us, Explorer’s Bases, Conservation, Education, and Support Our Work. Each has a drop down menu that will let you navigate to different sections in the category when you mouse over it. I’d definitely recommend checking out the Explorer’s Bases section, and under the Conservation tab the History of the Project section.
