Exploring HMS Terror

Parks Canada last month released, and I missed until now, film taken inside of the wreck of the HMS Terror from the Franklin Expedition.
A remotely-operated vehicle explored the interior of the ship, recording high-definition video of the cabins and the astonishingly well-preserved artifacts still in place. Note the mention of the possible preservation of documents.

That was great John. Last summer a chum and I went to the displays about the finding of the wreck, and just a month later we were both at Royal Greenwich and delighted to come across the memorial to the fated crews of both the Terror and the Erebus. Cheers, BT
