The heavy metal lead (Pb) can irreversibly damage the human nervous system. To help understand Pb-induced damage, we have developed practical applications for genetically encoded Pb biosensors inExpand
Use your best endeavours to discover a sheltered and safe harbour
Abstract On 24 May 1847, Sir John Franklin’s third expedition reported “All well”, but less than a year later, on 22 April 1848, the 129 sailors who had set out from Britain on Erebus and Terror hadExpand
Franklin expedition lead exposure: New insights from high resolution confocal x-ray fluorescence imaging of skeletal microstructure
Skeletal microstructural results do not support the conclusion that Pb played a pivotal role in the loss of Franklin and his crew and suggest that bone samples would exhibit evidence of higher and more sustained uptake of Pb than that of a contemporary comparator naval population from the 19th century.

Pb distribution in bones from the Franklin expedition: synchrotron X-ray fluorescence and laser ablation/mass spectroscopy
Synchrotron micro-X-ray Fluorescence has been used to map the metal distribution in selected bone fragments representative of remains associated with the Franklin expedition. In addition, laserExpand
Lead Use on Roman Ships and its Environmental Effects
Underwater surveys along the Israeli coast have yielded numerous lead artefacts recovered from Roman shipwrecks, found due to sand shortage caused by nature and man. Unique site‐formation processesExpand
The palaeoimaging and forensic anthropology of frozen sailors from the Franklin Arctic expedition mass disaster (1845–1848): a detailed presentation of two radiological surveys
Natural and human caused disasters are not limited only to our time. Over the last few decades a branch of the forensic sciences has been developed which involves the collaboration of forensicExpand
Die bioanorganische Chemie vorwiegend toxischer Metalle
Die vorangegangenen Kapitel haben gezeigt, auf welche Weise anorganische Elemente in Form ihrer Verbindungen lebensnotwendig sein konnen.
Source identification of lead found in tissues of sailors from the Franklin Arctic Expedition of 1845
Abstract Atomic absorption analysis of recently discovered human remains from a 19 century British Arctic expedition indicates lead levels consistent with lead intoxication. Levels up to 30 timesExpand


Lead Levels in Human Tissues from the Franklin Forensic Project
Abstract Elemental analyses of bone samples from members of the 1845 Franklin Arctic Expedition revealed the presence of high levels of lead. Initial studies using inductively coupled plasma atomicExpand
