Join Dr. M. Ayre from the Arctic Institute of NA to hear how a sentence in a 120 yr-old document grew into 2 unconventional expeditions

At 10:20pm, 18th September 1902, the Scottish whaler (Nova Zembla) ran aground during a blinding snowstorm. Sailing in the death throes of the once industrious Arctic whaling trade, Nova Zembla was soon forgotten, left abandoned off a desolate and remote coastline high in the Canadian Arctic. Join Dr. Matthew Ayre from the Arctic Institute of North America to hear how a single sentence in a 120 year old document grew into 2 unconventional Arctic expeditions, the discovery of 2 historical whaling shipwrecks, and the untold story of a 19th century Inuit pioneer and explorer.

Snacks and curated shopping will take place after the event.
