The Australian Antarctic Division has developed an Antarctic Heritage Register which is a publicly accessible GIS-linked database. It includes sites and all items of movable and fixed cultural heritage. It is currently being populated and will provide a useful tool for management of historic sites in the Australian Antarctic Territory.
Further, it has been designed to record deterioration over time so that it can be monitored and priorities can be established for conservation and restoration work.
The database when completed will include:
- Antarctic art works
- Antarctic Division library artefacts
- Cape Denison (Mawson’s Huts) artefacts
- Davis Station artefacts
- Heard Island artefacts
- Macquarie Island artefacts
- Wilkes Station artefacts
More on site surveys are required to assess what artefacts exist in Australia’s Antarctic Territory and in collections outside the territory.
