Port Lockroy

Exploring the continent of Antarctica
Exploring the continent of Antarctica
Port Lockroy is one of Great Britain’s first research stations in Antarctica and a few years ago it was renovated back to its original state to become a museum (the world’s most Southerly museum) and the HQ for the Antarctica Heritage Trust (AHT). The AHT is responsible for maintaining and preserving the historical sites in Antarctica and during the Summer a staff of three (one male and two very attractive females) lives in the museum and watches over the different sites. The man who is leading up the mission to preserve these sites is Rick Atkinson. Rick is a former Arctic Dogsledder who spent many years in Antarctica working dog teams and was one of the last men to run dogs on the continent before they were banned from the continent. Now he heads up the AHT team that works in Antarctica. I had the chance to meet him while we were down there and to have him sign the book that he wrote about dogs in Antarctica (“Of Dogs And Men”). It is a very good book and I would recommend it. Port Lockroy also has a small gift shop and post office where I was able to buy a few souvenirs.
