Shackleton's Hut
Sir Ernest Shackleton and his men built this hut at Cape Royds at the start of their 1907-09 Nimrod Expedition. Inside, 'graffiti' on the walls include signatures of Shackleton, Frank Wild, Ernest Joyce and other participants of the expedition. The New Zealand Antarctic Heritage Trust has done a wonderful job preserving all the artifacts inside, including shoes, food, clothing, and supplies.
