John Rae

This week we finished our reports about the life of John Rae and went to St Magnus Cathedral churchyard to see where he was buried.
 Inside, as the organ played, we found the memorial sculpture which shows him in traditional furs and with his gun and a book. Could it represent the book in which he wrote notes about the traditional First Nations technology, with drawings of snow huts and snow shoes?

You will be able to read our reports about John Rae's life and expeditions on our wiki soon.
