Fogonazos blog has an interesting post about the huts abandoned by Antarctic explorers Robert F. Scott and Ernest Shackleton:
Shelves are still stocked with tins of cabbage, veal or onions. All these objects have been preserved by the cold for the last 100 years. Antarctic explorers Robert Falcon Scott and Ernest Shackleton left them here in their way to the South Pole, in the beginning of the 20th century. But none of them was able to come back.
