The story of the Investigator's search for the Franklin expedition

franklin.jpgA new book called Lost Beneath the Ice by Andrew Cohen looks at the story of the HMS Investigator and its search for Franklin and his crew. 

 

Now, Parks Canada is on its own search for the Franklin ships.  And as part of that project they found the H-M-S Investigator in 2010. Marc-AndrĂ© Bernier is the chief underwater archeologist with Parks Canada, and he led the team that dove down to the site of the long-lost ship.
