As the creator of the Interactive Google Map of Willem Barentsz 1596 Fatal 3rd Arctic Voyage referred to above, check out location #22A (the tent
symbol with a flag) where it states the following:
“Captain Carlsen's sloop, The Solid, recorded on September 9, 1871 having sighted Bartentsz’ Het Behouden Huys (The Rescued House) as follows: At
noon we observed the latitude 76° 12’ the distance from shore guessed The house on shore was 16 metres long by 10 metres broad and the fir wood
planks of which it was composed were 1 inches thick by from 14 to 16 inches broad and as far as we could make out they were nailed together The first
things we saw amongst the ruins of the house were two ships cooking pans of copper a crowbar or bar of iron a gun barrel an alarum a clock a chest in
which was found several files and other instruments many engravings a flute and also a few articles of dress.”
Barentsz dismantled his ship to build a lodge to survive the winter and for fire wood.
It has a photo of the remains of the 1596 wooden built lodge of Willem Barentsz on Novaya Zemlya.
The map is based on the book "The Three Voyages of William Barents to the Arctic Regions (1594, 1595, and 1596)." and has quotes and page references
