Report 13th October 2009

This week our guest speaker was Professor Martin Curzon who told the gripping story of Arctic exploration in the 1840s, The lost Franklin Expedition and the consequent search to find out what had happened to Sir John Franklin and his crew.

 
Professor Curzon believes that failure to eat raw meat and inadequate methods of canning food led to their deaths.
