Antarctica's Mawson's Hut gets heritage boost
Construction work on a new laboratory for conservation work on Mawson's Hut in Antarctica has been completed.

A team of Australians has just returned from the icy continent, where Sir Douglas Mawson led Australian expeditions between 1911 and 1914.

The team of eight included two builders, an electrician, an archeologist, a doctor and a conservator.
