To whet your appetite -- do you know?
This is a story that has launched more than three dozen search and recovery missions, and over the past 170+ years it has inspired novels, plays, songs, and TV shows such as the 2017 horror series Terror. Margaret Atwood called it the origin myth of disasters for Canadians. This is the first comprehensive exhibit on the Franklin Expedition since the ships were located, and travels to Mystic from London and Ottawa before moving on to Alaska. Learn the story and see the artifacts, some recovered from the shipwrecks as recently as 2016. All the major angles are covered, including:
- History – Possessed with a vast navy and extremely confident of its sailing prowess, Victorian England was obsessed with the Arctic, which represented their biggest hope of traversing the Northwest Passage, the much desired, possibly faster, trade route from Europe to Asia. In May 1845, Sir John Franklin and his 128-member crew set sail from London, England aboard HMS Erebus and Terror. They were last seen by Europeans in Baffin Bay, off the southwest corner of Greenland in July 1845. The enduring mystery of the Franklin Expedition is still unraveling.
- Anthropology and Indigenous Rights – Inuit oral histories have played a significant role in uncovering the fate of the Franklin Expedition. Their critical contributions include both traditional knowledge and oral histories relating to the European exploration of the Arctic Archipelago, which you can listen to on audio stations interspersed throughout the exhibition, and historical artifacts, some of which incorporated materials of European origin, which were traded from explorers or retrieved from abandoned ships.
- Underwater Archaeology – Parks Canada divers give a video tour of one wreck, and you’ll see the unbroken plates, glass bottles, and other daily items they’ve recovered from this remote dive site. With a short dive season entirely dependent on weather in the remote Canadian Arctic, each year the archaeologists plan for the worst, but hope to get even a few days on the wrecks to explore, document, and recover more evidence of what happened onboard.
- Forensics – In examining tissues collected from human remains recovered from Beechey Island, forensic anthropologists found that the amount of lead in the bones of some of the men was exponentially high, leading to the theory that lead poisoning may have been one of the factors contributing to the expedition’s demise. Other factors include scurvy and starvation, and perhaps cannibalism. DNA analysis has also matched crew members with descendants.
- Climate change – As the Northwest Passage has become more accessible to ships and boats of all types, the race to find and preserve the Franklin Expedition ships and camp sites has intensified. Learn how the Expedition suffered due to unexpectedly thick seasonal ice that trapped their ships even in the summer.
