Charley Milward was a notorious member of the Patagonian community in the early 20th century. At one point he was British Consul in Punta Arenas. Chatwin recounts his extraordinary story in the penultimate chapters of In Patagonia.

Although closed to the public, you can still visit his house near the Cueva del Milodón where he found the "brontosaurus" skin.
