Sir John Franklin & Scientific Discovery in the Arctic

14 June, 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Lambert Lecture

Lambert PosterDICAN presents a public lecture by
Dr. Andrew Lambert,
Professor of Naval History
King’s College, London, UK

followed by refreshments in the café

Dr. Lambert will talk about how the Franklin expedition was not just about ‘finding’ a Northwest Passage: none existed that could be used by ships at that time.

Instead, it was part of a global scientific endeavour to understand the earth’s magnetic field. Franklin was a scientist, not just an ‘explorer’.

Sponsored by Diamonds International Canada
