When she was small, Henrietta Hammant wanted to be an explorer. In the end she became an anthropologist, which she enjoys because it’s basically the same except she gets to listen to more stories. She became hooked on the Arctic after she realised that it was full of people who shared her love of watching polar bears, swimming in cold places and wearing thick socks, and that was that.

Anthropology Floes is a place for thoughts, reviews, and telling a few stories of her own.
