Franklin’s Lost Expedition Now Found

They’re not sure yet whether it’s the Erebus or the Terror, but a team including Parks Canada, the Canadian Coast Guard, and the government of Nunavut has announced that they have discovered, at the bottom of Victoria Strait in the Canadian arctic, the remains of a ship from Sir John Franklin’s ill-fated 1845 expedition to discover the Northwest Passage. The two ships and all crew members just disappeared; the Admiralty reward of £20,000 for finding them went unclaimed.
