Seeking the unknown, braving the hardness of the North - the ill-fated Franklin Expedition has become an enigmatic part of Canadian national identity. Many have sought to unravel the mystery of what really happened to Sir John Franklin and his crew. Now, 169 years after they set forth, an exciting discovery - the ship Erebus has been found.

On February 3, 2015 experts Marc-André Bernier and Adrian Schimnowski shared their experiences of the hunt for Franklin. The lecture explored recent discoveries and artifacts, underwater archaeology and what comes next in piecing together the real story of the Franklin Expedition.

This was very hard to watch, long and tedious. One of the better, short, documentaries I have seen about the Franklin Expedition was called 'Buried in Ice', made in 1988. Well worth watching.

Couple more years and a circumpolar trip will be a cool but not too uncomfortable slog across muddy shorelines and long kayak trips. With good fishing gear we'll be able to enjoy the sights of greening brush and occasional snow. As the arctic warms, it'll become hard to visualize the harrowing conditions these explorers experienced.

Was the Franklin Expedition in ANY way successful? Did they find out what caused the premature ending of their Mission Were any human remains found on board & were they ‘laid to rest’ or left with the ship? Was Franklin’s body/grave discovered?

@Zach I guess preparedness is everything Well we’re they able to find or chart some sort of a passage through or were able to claim territorial rights or something that enabled the passage that everyone was looking for for a trade route, in the end? I mean, did they it anyway, in death, be helpful to their country was it a complete failure from start to finish? Thanks for your time!
Zach 3 дні тому
Alot of bodies have been found, but none with the ships afaik, they walked overland to try to escape, they’ve found skeletal remains at old campsites. The mission wasnt ended premature, the real issue was neverending. They didnt have enough fuel, food and supplies to be stuck in the pack ice for 2+ years, which they were. In addition to that there was the possibility of lead poisoning from the tinned food, and of scurvy which would not have helped the situation of being stuck in a frozen sea for years.

My 5th great grandfather was on this expedition and wrote his wife when they arrived in the arctic. By the way they found it wasn't lead poisoning that killed the first two. Scientists found that higher levels of lead are found after the body dies, all the lead already in the body of the person (common at the time) goes into the hair and nails (still growing at after death for some time) making it appear that there was increased levels of lead at the time of death. They found the real reason but I can't remember what it was.

Your hair and nails are composed of the protein Keratin, the same substance as baleen in whales. In order for your body to continue producing it, the molecular machinery of protein translation would still have to be active. This ceases to happen after death. What happens is your skin dehydrates after death and recedes (shrinks), giving the illusion that your nails have indeed grown.

I ask everyone to answer one question. How many people do you know personally that have died of covid?? Then ask how many people you know have it or even had it. I bet many of you know one or LESS. I lived in a major east coast city and I knew of not one case. No neighbors, friends or family and I have 5 brothers and sisters who all have teenage kids. COVID was over blown and media porn. There are 340 Million people in the US. Less than .03 have died. Sorry that is sad but it's not what happened during the Spanish flu.

Dave, I've been asking this question for over a year. I was one of 100,000 airline employees laid off and I'm at home BEING PAID b/c the Congress foolishly gave the big airlines $45 BILLION dollars.YES, YOU HEARD ME RIGHT. I'm getting my full salary and they have not called me back to help with all the problems at the airports.... OUR BORDERS SHOULD BE CLOSED. .PERIOD! Canada is. The UK is....there is way more going on with COVID than what we are being told.

Everything seem to have to be framed in the context of climate change. Why was it so necessary to emphasize the study of climate change especially when it doesn't relate at all to the story at hand. It's as if a story can't be told without pointing out the evils of carbon footprints and man created damage. I mean...just tell the damn story! Right? Is it just me or did it seem rather unnecessary to bring the topic up here?

I remember reading Andrew Lambert's book (2009 Faber & faber). In it he charts the long history of Sabine and others in mapping world-wide magnetic observations. Ultimately, this quest moved north to determine the Magnetic Pole. As searches proved fairly fruitless and the Admiralty tired of the expense, Lady Franklin determined to raise funds by any means to continue the search. The Americans found an opportunity here. As the newspapers, especially in Britain, were still captivated by the mystery, the idea that they were searching for the NW Passage took a much more commanding hold in the popular imagination; Lady Franklin was, naturally, willing to go along with this if it brought in funds. It was a by-product of the searches that much of the area was mapped and, ultimately, the Passage as well.

Y'all can drop in at 65:00 if you're here to see the (brief) airing of TWO underwater stills of the shipwreck. Apparently they shot no video footage, at least none that they wished to share with us anyway. Unless you've got some rambunctious 3 and 5 year olds who are restless and are up way past their bedtimes. In that case then I'd greatly encourage you to start this lecture at it's beginning. 17 minutes. That's the longest that either one of them has been able to fight off the embrace Soma. Personally, if I find myself having trouble falling asleep what I do is cue it up to about 45:00 when their second "PhD Droneologist" briefly storms the stage and somehow manages to out-stultify the monumental monotonous monotony of the first "PhD Droneologist". ....and they said that it couldn't be done! ;-)

Yes most university and professional scholars are mostly interested in sounding erudite and obtaining there tenure at whatever institution they are from, they are very careful not to rock boat by coming forth with any news or discoveries that would rock the status quo of offic8al historical record, or any that would seriously open up questions as to the scientific opinions of human origin on earth etc.

I have to laugh as I literally fell asleep about 10 minutes in, then woke at about 1:10:00 and stopped at 1:18:00!! I was also wondering about all the millions of dollars and time spent trying to find the missing crew when it was so obvious what happened, and so many years ago. I was intrigued years ago when they found the graves and studied the remains etc. It is a great tragedy, but if the crew members could somehow know what has transpired... they'd be flabbergasted over it all.

Well done, for Gabriel's question. But I was interested to hear on other videos, how much more of the Inuit accounts and advice was first dismissed by the Royal Navy; and that originally, they were just dismissed as savages. This showed the Navy's ignorance, considering the Inuit have lived and thrived there for many thousands of years. I hope those concerned in this project really DO involve the Inuit more, and in the search for Terror. Perhaps the whole story would have been radically different, had the Inuits been listened to and involved from the start of Franklin's expedition. I mean- trying to cross the ice greatly weakened/dying, whilst pulling brass curtain rods, piles of prayer/hymnbooks etc.

I thought the sea level was supposed to rise? REMEMBER? OBAMA dont seem worried about his house being orvertaken by the atlantic? All these rich pricks are all living by the sea..flying in private jets doing every thing we are told is bad for the planet and given guilt trips and even scolded and ridiculed over.Just sayin?
