I’m sitting here looking at the video of the discovery of Sir John Franklin’s ship, Terror that was found in – how appropriate- Terror Bay. Amazing- even the glass in the windows! Two years ago the Erebus was found, in much poorer condition than this most recent discovery and I wrote about it at the time here. Academic Russell Potter, who released his book Finding Franklin: The Untold Story of a 165-Year Search on July 26, has written about the discovery on his blog and the Guardian has a very full report.
It’s all very exciting!
