More info

Frozen in Time is a breathtaking record of scientific detective work, using forensics on three perfectly preserved Victorian seamen discovered on Beechey Island. It also makes the case that their deaths were due to the crews' reliance on a new technology - tinned foods - which not only exposed the seamen to lead poisoning, but also left them vulnerable to scurvy, the ancient scourge of seafarers.
