Abstract

This is a study to present the evidence to show that Deception Island has played a significant role in the development of Antarctic affairs. It covers the involvement of the island in sealing, discovery, scientific exploration, flying, whaling, disputed colonialism and the final evacuation of the island due to the volcanic eruptions in 1961, 1969 and 1970, It suggests that there can be a future for Deception Island so that once again it can assume an important place in the events of this region and become again the 'capital'.
