 Bryan Lintott web

Dr Bryan Lintott's research focuses on how sites, structures and artefacts located in extreme environments beyond national boundaries, and ascribed heritage significance, are governed, managed, conserved and utilised. He has a specific interest in how the Antarctic Treaty System has incorporated heritage, a potentially divisive activity, within the Antarctic Treaty, a peace treaty. His research includes human heritage in Space: on sites, the Moon, planets and asteroids, and in flight such as the International Space Station. Bryan serves as the ICOMOS International Polar Heritage Committee’s Secretary-General and is currently working with colleagues to incorporate archaeology into the Antarctic Treaty System so that it supports peace, and enhances environmental science and stewardship. He is also engaged, academically and professionally, in developing methods and techniques to globally reduce the risks, through natural forces and human agency, to human heritage. He is also involved with Arctic heritage through his post as an Associate Professor II at the University of Tromsø, Norway.
