Industrial archaeology and heritage of South Georgia

Prof. dr. Bjørn L. Basberg, Norwegian School of Economics, Norway

The presentation reviews briefly the history of 20th century Antarctic shore station whaling, and then focusses on the industrial archeology of the former whaling sites at South Georgia that have been surveyed during several fieldtrips since 1990.
Methods and approaches are discussed, and how they have changed both due to improved technology and views on these sites in the wider political and historical context.
The presentation finally discusses some recent heritage projects at South Georgia.
