Sir John Franklin & Scientific Discovery in the Arctic

Event Details

Overview:

Dr. Andrew Lambert, Professor of Naval History at King’s College, London,will talk about how the Franklin expedition was not just about ‘finding’ a Northwest Passage: none existed that could be used by ships at that time. Instead, it was part of a global scientific endeavour to understand the earth's magnetic field. Franklin was a scientist, not just an ‘explorer’. Refreshments to follow in the café.
