One Down, One To Go

book cover image Franklin's Lost Ship

Seventeen decades later, a mystery solved. At least, half of it.  The mysterious fate of Sir John Franklin's ships, HMS Erebus and HMS Terror, has captured the public's imagination since 1845. Now, one of Franklin's lost ships has been found.

During the summer of 2014, the Victoria Strait Expedition was led by Parks Canada in partnership with the Arctic Research Foundation, The Royal Canadian Geographical Society, and other public and private partners. The expedition used world-leading technology in the discovery of Erebus.
