About

Junius and Augustus were two guides recruited in June 1821 when the expedition party left Fort Enterprise for the Coppermine River, crossing the line dividing Indian territory from Inuit. John Franklin's expedition of 1819-22 travelled via the Coppermine River to map the Canadian Arctic coast, as part of efforts to find the fabled North-West Passage. Illustration from Narrative of a journey to the shores of the Polar Sea, by John Franklin (London, 1823).
