Willem Barents' ekspedisjon i 1596 - et 400 års-minne / Nils O. Alm.

Title: Willem Barents' ekspedisjon i 1596 - et 400 års-minne / Nils O. Alm.
Translated title: Willem Barents's expedition in 1596 - a 4th centenary.
Author(s): Alm, Nils O.
Date: 1996.
Language: Norwegian.
In: Polarboken. (1996.), (1996)
Abstract: Article discusses some medical aspects of the over-wintering on Novaya Zemlya, based on Gerrit de Veer's 1609 book "The three voyages of William Barents to the Arctic regions". Methods of coping with cold are described, followed by sicknesses. Several aspects of undoubted scurvey and possible cures are mentioned. Although apparently people did not think of prevention, several treatments were known by seafarers, including possibly Dutch spruce beer carried on ships. Unfortunately, knowledge was not passed on to Norwegian trappers, who still died of scurvey up to 19th Cent.
