Antarctic Artefacts Database
Entry ID: DB_Antarctic_Artefacts


Summary
Abstract: The Antarctic Artefacts database contains a record of items that have either been recorded in-situ in Antarctica, or have been retrieved and returned to Australia for storage.

The artefacts are organised on a collection basis, and currently the archive centres around three main collections:

Antarctic Division Library Artefacts
Cape Denison Artefacts
Heard Island Artefacts

Many artefacts have accompanying images in the AAD's Image Antarctica.

The original library artefacts database has been incorporated into this database.
