Investigator's Field Report

General Description
In June 1611, after suffering through a harsh and painful winter, ice-locked in the southeast of what is now known as "James Bay," the crew of Henry Hudson's ship Discovery mutinied and sent the captain, his son and several other crew members adrift in a small boat, about 50 miles from shore. Various theories have emerged to indicate Hudson and his company reached shore and proceeded further south, but their ultimate fate is not known with certainty.
