Canada Locates 155-Year-Old Wreck

Tuesday, August 03, 2010

According to a July 28 report from the National Post, the ship whose crew discovered Canada’s Northwest Passage has been found 155 years after it was abandoned and disappeared in this isolated Arctic bay. This historic find may help bolster Canadian claims to Arctic sovereignty. The wreck of HMS Investigator was detected in shallow water within days of Parks Canada archeologists launching an ambitious search for the 422-ton ship from a chilly tent encampment on the Beaufort Sea shoreline.
