Join us April 8, 2017 at the Prince George Civic Centre
Celebrate our northern history during Canada's 150th!
Join keynote Dr Martin Magne (pictured at right), recent Director of the Archaeology and History Branch with Parks Canada, as he speaks about investigations into one of the greatest puzzles in the history of Canadian exploration.
In 1845, the ill-fated Franklin Expedition set off in search of the fabled Northwest Passage. Both ships and their crew were lost. After more than 160 years, HMS Erebus was found in 2014 and HMS Terror in 2016.
