Genre: History

In 1845, British explorer Sir John Franklin set out on a voyage to find the North-West Passage – the sea route linking the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific. The expedition was expected to complete its mission within three years and return home in triumph but the two ships, HMS Erebus and HMS Terror, and the 129 men aboard them disappeared in the Arctic. The last Europeans to see them alive were the crews of two whaling ships in Baffin Bay in July 1845, just before they entered the labyrinth of the Arctic Archipelago. The loss of this British hero and his crew, and the many rescue expeditions and searches that followed, captured the public imagination, but the mystery surrounding the expedition's fate only deepened as more clues were found. How did Franklin's final expedition end in tragedy? What happened to the crew? The thrilling discoveries in the Arctic of the wrecks of Erebus in 2014 and Terror in 2016 have brought the events of 170 years ago into sharp focus and excited new interest in the Franklin expedition. This richly illustrated book is an essential guide to this story of heroism, endurance, tragedy and dark desperation.

Sir John Franklin

ISBN: 9781927051818
Release Date: 2012
Genre: Biography & Autobiography

After Royal Navy captain Sir John Franklin disappeared in the Arctic in 1846 while seeking the Northwest Passage, the search for his two ships, Erebus and Terror, and survivors of his expedition became one of the most exhaustive quests of the 19th century. Despite tantalizing clues, the ships were never found, and the fate of Franklin's expedition passed into legend as one of the North's great and enduring mysteries. Anthony Dalton explores the eventful and fascinating life of this complex and intelligent man, beginning with his early sea voyages and arduous overland explorations in the Arctic. After years in Malta and Tasmania, Franklin realized his dream of returning to the Far North; it would be his last expedition. Drawing from evidence found by 19th-century Arctic explorers following in Franklin's footsteps and investigations by 20th-century historians and archaeologists, Dalton retraces the route of the lost ships and recounts the sad tale of Franklin, his officers and men in their final agonizing months.

Die berühmte Expedition des Polarforschers John Franklin, die 1845 auf der Suche nach der Nordwestpassage aufbrach, endete in einer rätselhaften Katastrophe: Keiner kam zurück. Knapp 150 Jahre später findet der Anthropologe Owen Beattie im arktischen Permafrost die Leichen von drei Expeditionsmitgliedern - und kommt der Wahrheit Stück für Stück auf die Spur. Jetzt scheint die Lösung eines der größten Mysterien der Seefahrt erstmals in greifbarer Nähe zu sein: Vor der Küste Kanadas stieß 2014 ein Forscherteam um John Geiger auf eines der beiden verschollen geglaubten Schiffe der Franklin-Expedition. Liegt hier der Schlüssel zu dem, was damals geschah?

Relics of the Franklin Expedition

Genre: Transportation

Sir John Franklin’s Arctic expedition departed England in 1845 with two Royal Navy bomb vessels, 129 men and three years’ worth of provisions. None were seen again until nearly a decade later, when their bleached bones, broken instruments, books, papers and personal effects began to be recovered on Canada’s King William Island. These relics have since had a life of their own—photographed, analyzed, cataloged and displayed in glass cases in London. This book gives a definitive history of their preservation and exhibition from the Victorian era to the present, richly illustrated with period engravings and photographs, many never before published. Appendices provide the first comprehensive accounting of all expedition relics recovered prior to the 2014 discovery of Franklin’s ship HMS Erebus.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2007 im Fachbereich Geschichte Europa - and. Lander - Neuzeit, Absolutismus, Industrialisierung, Note: 1,7, Universitat Vechta; fruher Hochschule Vechta (Institut fur Geschichte und historische Landesforschung), Veranstaltung: An fremden Stranden - Mentalitat und ethnoscriptiver Blickwinkel in den Beobachtungen von Forschern und Entdeckern, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Er wird als einer der grossten Arktisforscher aller Zeiten bezeichnet: Sir John Franklin. "Ein Isthmus, ein Landstreifen (sudlich der Adelaide-Halbinsel), eine Bucht (im Amundsen-Golf) und ein Kap, alles in der kanadischen Arktis gelegen, tragen den Namen dieses grossen Polarforschers." 1845 macht er sich auf, seine vierte Expedition in arktischen Gewassern zu leiten, nachdem er wahrend der drei vorherigen Unternehmungen tausende Meilen von Kustengewassern und Landstrichen erforscht und kartografiert hat. Diese vierte Expedition sollte ihn mit der Entdeckung der Nordwestpassage unsterblich machen, sie endete jedoch in einer Katastrophe fur ihn und die 129 Mann seiner Besatzung. Bis heute ist kaum etwas uber den Verlauf und den Verbleib der Expedition bekannt, auch bin ich wahrend meiner Recherchen auf widerspruchliche Aussagen gestossen, in meiner Arbeit mochte ich jedoch versuchen ein moglichst genaues Bild uber die Tragodie, die sich damals abgespielt haben muss wiederzugeben."

Genre: History

The truth about what happened on Sir John Franklin’s ill-fated Arctic expedition of 1845–48 has been shrouded in mystery for 165 years. Carrying the best equipment that the science and technology, Franklin and his men set out to “penetrate the icy fastness of the north, and to circumnavigate America.” The expedition’s two ships — HMS Erebus and HMS Terror — carrying 129 officers and men, disappeared without a trace. From 1846 to 1880 more than 20 major rescue parties were involved in the search for the missing men and ships. The disappearance of the expedition and absence of any substantial written accounts of the journey have left attempts at a reconstruction of events sketchy and inconclusive. In Frozen in Time, forensic anthropologist Owen Beattie and historian John Geiger tell the dramatic story of the excavation of three sailors from the Franklin Expeditions, buried for 138 years on the lonely headland of Beechey Island. This book contains the astonishing photographic record of the excavation, together with the maps and illustrations that accompany this riveting account of Franklin’s fatal adventure. The unfolding of Dr. Beattie’s unexpected findings is not only a significant document but also, in itself, a tale of high adventure.

Thirty Years in the Arctic Regions

Author: Sir John Franklin
Publisher: U of Nebraska Press
ISBN: 080326867X
Release Date: 1988
Genre: History

In 1845 Sir John Franklin and his expedition, sailing on the Erebus and the Terror, set out in search of the Northwest Passage. In their pursuit of that elusive water route across North America they all perished, their fate remaining unknown for many years. Franklin and his crew inspired a spate of books on exploration in the nineteenth century, and interest in his expedition has revived with the recent discovery of the bodies of several of its members, perfectly preserved by ice for nearly a century and half. Thirty Years in the Arctic Regions, originally published in 1859, is Franklin's own record of his earlier explorations that put the high arctic on the map, and includes his last letter and reports tracing the expedition's last movements. He describes the daily progress of his two overland expeditions from 1818 to 1827, which covered a thousand miles between the Great Slave Lake and the Arctic Ocean and charted fourteen hundred miles of coastline between Cape Beechey in present-day Alaska and Bathurst Inlet, to the north of Hudson Bay. It is a narrative filled with the exhilarating strangeness of everything about the Far North and unimaginable hardship endured heroically. Bil Gilbert's introduction is informed by a first-hand feeling for what Franklin was up against. Several years ago he followed much of the explorer's route, an experience that is described in Our Nature (Nebraska, 1986).
