Each crewman had his own sea chest for his personal belongings. These wooden chests have since perished, only the locks and little keys remain. To kill time, the men made music and played sports. A drumstick and a flute were found on Nova Zembla. The ball is made of whalebone and was used to play ‘kolven’, a kind of hockey. The little comb was used to remove headlice.
