Swimming under the ice, a diver from Norway approaches the sunken hulk of the Maud for a better view of the ship once sailed by Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen. “Maud herself as an old ship seem[s] to be the caretaker of the whole history of Amundsen and his brave men, fighting their way through to those empty impossible places on this planet. They were polar heroes, but they were also normal human beings, vulnerable and full of respect for their limitations,” writes Jan Waanggaard, the manager of the “Maud Returns Home” project, which aims to transport the ship from Nunavut to Norway next summer.
