British Academy

Marmier's residence in Denmark from May to December 1837 was broken by a two-month visit to Sweden and Norway in June and July. In the course of this preliminary short stay, he made fleeting visits to Lund, Växsjö, Uppsala, Stockholm, Dannemora, Falun, and Christiania. Marmier returned to Sweden early in January 1838, where he worked principally in Stockholm and Uppsala before travelling on to Trondheim via Christiania in May to join La Recherche for its next expedition. The first visit was spent predominantly in finding his feet and in establishing contacts, while the second involved more intensive study and consolidation. Marmier visited Sweden again briefly in 1839 on his return from Lapland, and again in 1842 on his way to Russia.
