Lecture Series: Britain and Egypt from Nelson to Nasser

This seminar will examine the story of British Arctic exploration

The search for the North-West Passage in the remote and inhospitable waters of the Arctic became one of the longest and most compelling adventure stories in the history of exploration. This seminar will examine the story of British Arctic exploration: the early voyages of Frobisher; early attempts by whalers to discover the passage; the tragic death of Franklin, whose disappearance gripped mid-Victorian observers; and Inglefield and Cresswell, the men who first discovered and charted the North-West Passage during their search for Franklin.
