Willem Barentsz [Barents]. Oppdagelsen av Svalbard / Tore Sørensen.

Title: Willem Barentsz [Barents]. Oppdagelsen av Svalbard / Tore Sørensen.
Translated title: Willem Barentsz. The discovery of Svalbard.
Author(s): Sørensen, Tore.
Date: 1996.
Publisher: Tromsø: Ravnetrykk
Language: Norwegian.
In: Ultima Thule. (1996.),
Abstract: Four theories on first discoverers: Stone Agers, Norsemen, Pomor trappers or Barentsz (author dismisses Willoughby). Likewise three other groups lack firm evidence. Barentsz hit on islands, searching for North-east Passage in 1596. English and Dutch explorations are described, up to discovery of Svalbard and over-wintering on Novaya Zemlya. Map of West Spitsbergen followed in 1598. Jan Rijp, who separated from Barentsz, went north. On return, he claimed to have seen hacked-off walrus tusks and head on Bear Island, which he understood as sign of Russian ivory trade.
