Arctic Voyages of Martin Frobisher

Under orders from Queen Elizabeth I, privateer and adventurer Martin Frobisher took up the search for a northwestern route to Asia. On 14 July 1576 Frobisher sighted the most easternly tip of Arctic North America. Over the next three summers the area would be the scene of an adventure involving the fruitless search for a northwest passage, the first attempt by the British to establish a settlement in the New World, and the first major gold-mining fraud in North American history.
