comment How did Nansen plan to get home from the Fram expedition?
Sounds like a reasonable conjecture. Know of any sources for the idea that Nansen was just hoping to run into another expedition?

comment How did Nansen plan to get home from the Fram expedition?
@TylerDurden, Nansen's plan was at least good enough that he received a grant from the Storting, and good enough that a crew of experienced explorers and scientists signed on to sail with him.

@user58697, that's pretty much exactly what I'm looking for. If you (or anyone else) posts it as an answer, I'll upvote it.

comment How and when did gold achieve its cultural role?
You're asking "how" gold achieved its cultural role, but you don't want to know "why" gold had value? I'm not sure what hair you're trying to split here.

This is exactly the sort of information I needed, and that PDF you linked to helped even further.
