The preserved bodies of three crewman from the ill-fated Franklin Expedition were exhumed from the permafrost of Beechey Island in 1984 to determine cause of death. Autopsy and toxicology analysis of John Torrington, John Hartnell and William Braine showed evidence of lead poisoning, which is believed to have come from cans the food was stored in on board their ships. http://www.cultofweird.com #cannibalism
John Torrington, British seaman on the Franklin expedition, died in 1846. Here he is being exhumed after having been buried in the permafrost above the Arctic Circle. Not looking too worse for the wear for someone being dead for 167 years. Luckily he died before his mates started eating one another.
