FREE LUNCHTIME TALK

Conserving Norwich's Antarctic Heritage

By Geoff Cooper, UK Antarctic Heritage Trust

We are very lucky to be joined by Geoff Cooper after his latest visit to the Antarctic Peninsula. In this talk Geoff will be explaining his role as a conservator for the UK Antarctic Heritage Trust, which includes looking after 3 historic huts built by Norwich firm Boulton and Paul. Using archival photographic prints and information the talk will look in depth at what the huts were used for and how Geoff went about identifying the huts from the photographs. The talk will conclude with an explanation of the logistics and practicalities of conducting conservation work in Antarctica.

No booking required.
