Background

The search for the Northwest Passage was a quest that had consumed some of Europe’s most accomplished mariners for centuries, a generations-spanning obsession that chipped away at European understanding of North America’s high latitudes, sometimes at great cost to both vessels and lives.

The Franklin Expedition, consisting of HMS Terror & HMS Erebus, set out on May 19 1845 as the best equipped crew to ever attempt the voyage. They were seen for the last time at Baffin Bay, just east of the Passage’s entrance; and then, they vanished. None of the crew ever to be seen by Europeans again. There are many theories as to what happened to the lost Franklin Expedition but none were ever confirmed, it remains a mystery to this day.
