Some cheese – funding for investigating the history of mountaineering

IMG_2465Today we received the great news that we received a small amount of funding (25000 kr) for visiting the Keswick museum that hosts the mountain heritage trust collection that relates to the history of (UK) mountaineering. We are really excited about this since we will be able to find some initial traces of how the history of mountaineering (and hence the commercialization of risk) has evolved through technical developments and undertakings. The data collection is planned for the fall of 2017.
