Join us for a discussion on the fate of Franklin's expedition with marine archaeologist Ryan Harris
This year the Canadian Government led the biggest search yet to find Sir John Franklin’s lost ships. On 19 May 1845 HMS Erebus and HMS Terror departed Greenhithe under Franklin’s command to find and navigate the Northwest Passage. Except for a brief meeting with whalers and occasional encounters with the Inuit, the crews of the vessels would never be seen alive again.
Join us for a discussion on the fate of the expedition with marine archaeologist Ryan Harris. Ryan has been involved in six campaigns to find the ships.
In partnership with the Canadian High Commission and the Eccles Centre for American Studies at the British Library
