An unprovanced relic of Sir John Franklin's last expedition 1845-1848. A fragment of a hardwood block sheave marked with a broad arrow. It may come from the ship driven ashore a Grant Point. Schwatka was told by the Inuit of the Adelaide Peninsula that they had found a ship near the shore in this area. It was abandoned except for the body of a European man. The Inuit removed anything useful and the vessel subsequently sank. They also reported finding the footprints of the four last crew members on the shore. Hall was told a similar story except that the ship was said to have sunk near O'Reilly Island.
