Frozen in Time: Unlocking the Secrets of the Franklin Expedition
by Beattie, Owen; Geiger, John
xi, 180 pp. "The truth about what happened on Sir John Franklin's ill-fated Arctic expedition of 1845-48 has been shrouded in mystery for nearly 140 years. The disappearance of Franklin's lavishly equipped ships--HMS Terror and HMS Erebus--together with the absence of any written accounts of the journey, save on tragic note found by a nineteenth-century search expedition, had left attempts at a reconstruction of events sketchy and inconclusive. Then, on June 29, 1981, part of a bleached human skull was found by the team working with anthropologist Dr. Owen Beattie. This led--through three further scientific expeditions over the next five years--to the quite extraordinary revelations of this book." Colored photographs included.
