In 1845, explorer Sir John Franklin set sail from England with two ships, HMS Erebus and HMS Terror, in search of a Northwest Passage across what is now Canada’s Arctic. The ships and crews vanished, prompting massive searches ever since.
A breakthrough was made in September 2014 when an expedition led by Parks Canada discovered the wreck of HMS Erebus. Then during Parks Canada’s recent 2016 Mission, HMS Terror was discovered.
A Parks Canada scientist/diver will talk about the efforts to find the ships over the years and what led to the discoveries.
