Echoes in the Ice- The Search for Franklin’s Ship

Friday, July 14, 2017 @ 5:45 AM

Prince George, B.C. – Exploration Place  in  Prince George is home to a new exhibit that will be here until  early October  ” Echoes in the Ice – Finding Franklin’s Ship”  shares the story of the  ill fated  search  for the Northwest Passage .

“A significant part of our role as a regional museum is to bring national stories and exhibits to Northern BC,” said Tracy Calogheros, CEO The Exploration Place Museum + Science Centre, “Echoes in the Ice is one such story, forming a significant part of the historical tapestry of Canadian culture and lore. ”

The Franklin Expedition  of 1845  vanished in the Arctic.    The  wrecks of the  two ships  HMS Terror and HMS Erebus  only  discovered   last year.

The exhibition  tells the story of the  Franklin expedition  with recent Parks Canada photographs of the HMS Terror, as well as photographs and videos from the discovery of HMS Erebus, artifacts and objects  from the same  period when the ships initially  set sail, as well  modern scientific objects used by  scientist who  continue to investigate the  Arctic.





When are they going to stop wasting tax dollars looking for these ancient wrecks. They are old history.

    You are an ancient artifact yet the government still sends you a check every month. Waste of tax dollars?

    They don’t care about our future, so might as well use it on this..

    So let’s ignore our history? No thanks.
