One of Saknussemm's runic markers

Arne Saknussemm was a 16th-century alchemist who claimed to have discovered a passage to the centre of the Earth via Snæfellsjökull in Iceland.

Following his runic marks which often wrote A.S., Professor Lidenbrock made a journey in 1864 and even discovered Lidenbrock Sea.

Because of his significance, some of his markers were carried to the British Museum.
