A well-stocked pantry at Scott's Hut Point shelter at Cape Evans


Supplies left on the shelves of the hut untouched since 1911. As today, much of the food was dried or canned. The only preservation method not used for food brought from home was freezing as in those days, refrigeration equipment was not sufficiently well developed or reliable enough to keep the food frozen on the journey south.

Many of these supplies, well preserved over the years by the freezing conditions, had been as souvenirs over the years by various visitors to the hut. Today the hut is preserved as a category 1 historic site under the Antarctic Treaty and is actively being preserved by the Antarctic Heritage Trust
