Century-old ski found at Mys Triest, Ostrov Champa, Zemlya Frantsa-Iosifa, Russia

  • P.J. Capelotti (a1)

A fragment of a ski dating from the late 19th or early 20th century was found at Mys Triest [Cape Trieste] on Ostrov Champa [Champ Island] in the Zemlya Frantsa-Iosifa [Franz Josef Land] archipelago in August 2006. The age and location of the ski suggest a connection with the American era of exploration of Zemlya Frantsa-Iosifa (1898–1905).
