Southern Horizons – Robert Burton and UKAHT

First published in 2008, Robert Burton describes the history of the British Antarctic Territory. This accessible history ranges from the discovery of the Peninsula and the time of the early sealing industry, into the Heroic Era and through to the permanent occupation of British bases in Antarctica and the signing of the Antarctic Treaty, a remarkable testament to the international spectrum of those committed to Antarctica. A 'must-read' for those interested in the history of Antarctica.

Base A Port Lockroy Visitor Guide

British Base A at Port Lockroy is one of the most historically significant buildings on the Antarctic Peninsula. This beautifully illustrated guide gives an insight into the work and legacy of the men that lived there. It tells the story of the UK Antarctic Heritage Trust and how Port Lockroy was restored to its original 1950s condition. As well as exploring the history of Port Lockroy, this guide takes you on a tour of Goudier Island from the landing site at the rusting mooring chains to each room of Bransfield House, and includes information on Base A today and some of the wildlife found at Port Lockroy.
