VIDEO: This Shack In Antarctica Has Been Abandoned For Over 100 Years. What They Found Inside? Stunning!

When these abandoned shacks were discovered in Antarctica, researchers hit the jackpot when it comes to understanding how explorers in the frozen land lived nearly a century ago.


abandoned hut antarcticaErnest Shackelton and Robert Falcon Scott were two of the first men to reach the South Pole and call the frigid, harsh landscape home for any length of time. Now a few of the structures they erected are still there and they shed light on how these men survived in such a desolate, frigid place.



Pip Cheshire is a conservation architect who has been working hard to restore Shackelton’s buildings in the coldest place on earth.l

He has been working to restore them to the condition of when the great South Pole explorers had lived there.

The shack seems very unassuming from the outside.

And it is clearly in a cold, harsh landscape.

Scott’s Hut is surrounded by nothing but winter wilderness.


Life was crowded in these Antarctic huts. Scott is pictured working at his desk.

Clothing was hung up to dry and despite being inside, the temperatures were still cold.

Supplies were brought in and stored in boxes and jars inside the shack.

The ancient-looking stove needed to provide heat to the explorers who had left civilization to venture into the subzero wilderness.

The average high in the summer was 20 F while the average low reached about -56 F. And that stove was the only source of heat…

The men survived on lots of carbohydrates like flour and crackers.

Fortunately the men never had a shortage of salt.

Do you enjoy the rustic look of the place?

The buildings were supposedly abandoned because they leaked water.

Shackelton and Scott were brave explorers who survived the unendurable cold to bring civilization in touch with the South Pole.
