Trails to heaven. [Stuart Wavell] -- "When an ancient Viking harpoon turns up in a newly dead walrus, the local Eskimos are baffled and the world of archaeology is riven by the prospect of rewriting the history of the North West. Without its covering of snow and ice, the trail to the summit led over giant boulders over which people literally crawled.
