A Sámi woman in her tent on Kabla Mountain, 1850
John Francis Campbell (1821-1885) was born in
Scotland, educated at Eton and Edinburgh. He was an
enthusiastic traveller. His journeys took him to many
parts of the world, but he had particular affection
for the Scandinavian countries, to which he kept
returning. During the period 1849 to 1873 he
visited Scandinavia 11 times, six of which he
travelled in the Northern Areas.
