A relic of Sir John Franklin's last expedition 1845-1848. A rope grommet, found in an abandoned boat at Erebus Bay, King William Island by the Schwatka Search Expedition 1878-1879. The end of a three stranded rope with an eye lashed in it. The boat may have been 'Erebus's' pinnace as her 28 foot length would accord. In the years between the two search expeditions the Inuit had broken the boat up. They reported to Hall and Schwatka that they had found a second boat at Erebus Bay and 14 more skeletons.
