Lines in the Ice

Exploring the Roof of the World

Philip J Hatfield

Philip J Hatfield’s history of human engagement with the Arctic draws on the collections of the British Library and uses a great range of books, maps, photographs and prints to describe the indigenous populations of the region and their culture; European explorations, from the early voyages in search of a ‘Northwest Passage’ to 20th-century polar expeditions and scientific research; and the legacy of that history for the modern Arctic.
