Archaeologists connected with Amsterdam's Rijksmuseum journeyed into the Russian Artic to rediscover the graves, ship, and wintering cabin of Willem Barents' expedition, lost 400 years ago on the shores of a remote Arctic Island while chartinga passage to Asia.

This is a book about Reformation and exploratory Romanticism, Arctic discovery, chasing the demon of his own creation across the floes of the Kara Sea, the former Ice Sea. With the original journal from Barents' ship in hand, the authors present a view of the Arctic through the eyes of a sixteenth-century explorer, and in the geometry of Barents' ship and cabin to rediscover the key to a Renaissance past.Zeeberg, Jaapjan is the author of 'Into the Ice Sea ', published 2005 under ISBN 9789051707878 and ISBN 9051707878.
