Shackleton stores

While it is quite remarkable how well the huts, their contents and surroundings have survived, it's all relative and many crates have broken down and disintegrated to some degree while cans have rusted and many have leaked.

Conservation efforts also includes removal of possible contaminants leaking from these damaged tins.
