    • Believe it or not, artifacts do exist in the Arctic and Antarctic. In some situations, they have withstood the passage of time and have remained intact, preserved as reminders of adventurers who traversed these regions.
    • In other situations, careful preservation of items stored in shelters require careful restoration. Those involved in protecting and displaying artifacts or important articles from the past implement a practice called "conservation". To become skilled in conservation of artifacts requires years of specialized training, but the average person can practice some of these highly specialized skills once they learn the basics.
    • This is what will be covered in this enrichment guide:

The Arctic has numerous native cultures that have successfully lived for centuries.
