Piecing Together the Ice Museum

Wednesday 26 October 2005 20:15-20:35 (Radio 3)

Joanna Kavenna was so swept away by stories of the lost land of Thule, she left her job to go in search of it, journeying through Greenland, Iceland, the Baltic States and Scandinavia.

Greek explorer Pytheas claimed to have sighted this mystery land in the oceans north of Britain, but its exact location has remained unknown - captivating generations of explorers, archaeologists and writers.

Duration:

20 minutes
