Search Resumes for Franklin Expedition


The CCGS Sir Wilfrid Laurier will begin a 6 week search on Aug 18th for the remains of HMS Erebus and HMS Terror which are believed to have become stranded in ice in 1848, causing Franklins crew to set off over land to seek help. Over the last 150 years, numerous attempts have located some bodies, and other artifacts, but never the actual ships themselves.
