Franklin Reconstruction - Interior


Welcome to a virtual world reconstruction of an Inuvialuit sod house based on a drawing by Lieutenant George Back. Back was a British Royal Navy officer who served on an expedition to the western Canadian Arctic in 1825-27 under the command of Captain John Franklin. Back’s drawings of the sod house, and the drawings in the background you will see as you enter this virtual world, are illustrations from a book on the expedition published in 1828.
