In the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, unprecedented numbers of Britons travelled to the sub-Arctic, foreshadowing the fever for polar exploration that would emerge in the mid-nineteenth century. At the same time, literary and scientific developments contributed to the movement now known as Romanticism. How did the sciences, antiquarianism, and ethnology interact to produce visions of the North? And what happened when British 'men of science' and Northern indigenous peoples encountered each other's ways of knowing the world? This study presents a new approach to understanding British engagements with the North, revealing its heretofore unheralded significance for the development of British identities, the Romantic imagination, and the advancement of the sciences.

About the Author:

Angela Byrne is Lecturer in History at the University of Greenwich, UK.

Review:

'Byrne restores the experience of Northern travels to its rightful place at the heart of European Romanticism. The reader is guided with great agility between antiquarian and ethnographic visions, traversing the liminal spaces of the North's own inhabited worlds and natural histories. At long last we have a book that provides a convincing critical analysis of the North in the formation of Britain's cultural identity.' - Michael Bravo, Head of History and Public Policy, Scott Polar Research Institute, University of Cambridge, UK

'This is a superb account of British northern travelers, demonstrating the holistic blend of the emerging sciences with the arts, literature, antiquarian interest and the taste for indigenous cultures. Angela Byrne's richly nuanced North stands out as a major projection screen for the imperial imagination, on par with the Orient or the Tropics, and as an emerging zone of cultural ideas and economic transactions foreshadowing today's interactive Arctic that is deeply integrated in world affairs.' - Sverker Sörlin, Professor of Environmental History, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden, and editor of Science, Geopolitics, and Culture in the Nordic Region
