Borchgrevink’s Hut was constructed at Cape Adare during Carsten Borchgrevink’s British Antarctic Expedition of 1898-1900. Consisting of two huts, one used as living quarters and the other as a storeroom, it was built in less than a month when the expedition arrived in February 1899. The expedition became the first to successfully winter over on the Antarctic Continent, and the hut withstood the harsh conditions. Whilst preparing to leave, the men began to dismantle the stores hut with the intention of moving it south, removing the roof before changing their mind. On leaving, the party also left stores, and erected a cross in memory of Nicolai Hanson, who had died during the expedition.
