Frozen in Time tells the dramatic story of how Sir John Franklin's elite naval forces came within sight of the Northwest Passage, only to succumb to unimaginable horrors. A gripping tale of cannibalism, bureaucratic hubris, great courage and ground-breaking science, it shows how the excavation of three sailors from the 1845-48 Franklin expedition, buried for 138 years on the Arctic headland of Beechey Island, has shed new light on what has been one of the world's great maritime mysteries.

Owen Beattie was born in Victoria, British Columbia, and is Professor of Anthropology at the University of Alberta. He was the director and principal investigator of the Franklin Forensic Project. He is married and lives in Alberta with his wife and three children.
