The Continent of Antarctica

The existance of a far southern land mass was not confirmed until British, United States, and Russian national expeditions and commercial operations began exploring the region in the early 1820's. In 1840 it was established that Antarctica was actually a huge continent, and not just a group of islands.

Territorial Claims
Seven countries have made territorial claims in Antarctica, but no other country recognizes these claims. The Antarctic Treaty was enacted in 1961 to govern and coordinate the activities of all of the different nations and research stations in Antarctica. That treaty neither denies or recognizes any of the territorial claims made by different countries
