Fridtjof Nansen, Eva and Liv Islands
Case story: On this page I will collect more info, maps, letters and drawings about Eva and Liv Islands and Fridtjof Nansen's missions on his journeys in the polar areas.
Photo of the first land – Eva's Island – Nansen came to on the way back from the polar ice journey.
Nansen's map of his journey and the newly discovered islands, back in the days1895-96.
Nansen's story and foot note about the name giving of the two first islands they met when coming back from the ice (in Norwegian).
Foot note translation: 1) The first island I named Eva's Island and the second Liv's Islnad and the the little one we went up on (to the top for a view) I named Adelaide's Island. The fourth island, southward was perhaps already named by Payer and by him named Freeden Island (The Peace Island). The group of island I named Heidtenland.
