OTTAWA — Prime Minister Stephen Harper says one of the two lost ships from Sir John Franklin’s doomed Arctic expedition has been found.
Harper says it’s not known yet whether the ship is HMS Erebus or HMS Terror.
The find was confirmed on Sunday using a remotely operated underwater vehicle…
The Great Lakes Shipwreck Historical Society has found a 115-year-old shipwreck. The shipwreck society was searching west of Whitefish Point, near Deer Park, when they noticed a blip on their side-scan sonar. After sending divers down to investigate what it may be, they were excited to find that it was the three masted wooden schooner, Nelson.
The Nelson sank in a rare spring gale, on May 13th, 1899. Nine people died including the captain’s family — the captain was the only survivor. The shipwreck society says this discovery will help us better understand the past.
