Franklin: Death in the Ice

Lunchtime lecture with one of our Curators in conversation with Polar exploration historian, Russell Potter. The talk will be based around the remarkable history of silverware and china plates from the Franklin expedition, which often seem to have borne both officers' family crests and the more crudely-scratched initials of ordinary sailors.
