About this book

Archaeologists connected with Amsterdam's Rijksmuseum journeyed into the Russian Arctic 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 charting a passage to Asia.

This book is the account of several expeditions during the 1990s and their historical parallels of four centuries.
