The Royal Arctic Institute was an organisation of Arctic explorers. The majority of its members were men. Its headquarters was a grand stone-fronted building located on Mornington Square, in Kensington in London.[1] There, members could dine or use the library of rare books. Some of the artefacts on display included the skull of a Panserbjorn and the harpoon used to kill the whale Grimssdur.[2]
