Elmwood, Cape Flora, Northbrook Island, Franz Josef Land
The World

The Federal Franz Josef Land Nature Reserve, the Russian Arctic National Park.

Remains of the wooden basement of a dwelling house of the Frederick Jackson expedition (1894-97).

Elmwood is the name of a permanent camp, almost a village of the Frederick Jackson expedition (1894-97). It was located on a coastal terrace at an altitude of 13 meters above sea level. A Pomorian log hut was used as a dwelling house, there were also supporting services and a barn.

Cape Flora is the most historically important place of Franz Josef Land archipelago. It is located in the south-eastern part of Northbrook Island at the southern tip of the archipelago, therefore its coast is favorable for landings of polar expeditions. Benjamin Lee Smith gave the cape its name in 1880 probably because of its rich and bright vegetation during the summer.

Northbrook Island is situated on the southeastern part of the archipelago, it was also discovered by Benjamin Lee Smith expedition and was called after Thomas George Baring Northbrook - English political leader.

More About The World

Welcome to Earth! It's a planet having an iron core, with two-thirds of its surface covered by water. Earth orbits a local star called the Sun, the light of which generates the food supply for all the millions of species of life on earth. The dominant species on Earth is the human being, and you're one of the six billion of them! Humans have iron in their blood, and their bodies are composed of two-thirds water, just like the planet they live on. The physical composition of the Earth, its people and everything on it contains an electro-magnetic field which is not yet fully understood. Theories and legends about the origin of Earth, people and life itself abound, however they are not commonly discussed. The bulk of earth's people spend their time immersed in daily activities, leaving the big questions for later. "Who are we? Where did we come from? Where are we going? How will we get there?" Many religions and philosophies have attempted to answer these questions over the years, but so far none has given an answer that everyone on the planet can accept. In contrast to all the disagreement, the similarities among people on earth are far, far greater than any differences. Welcome again to Earth! Enjoy your stay, and try to stay calm.
