OTTAWA, Sept. 28, 2015 /CNW/ - As Mission Erebus and Terror 2015 comes to a close, Parks Canada is releasing never-before seen photos taken during the expedition. These images showcase the archaeological work at the wreck of HMS Erebus and present, for the first time, a full view of the wreck without the help of radar imagery.
Parks Canada and its Mission partners have been working diligently over the past weeks to investigate the HMS Erebus and continue the search for HMS Terror. Good weather conditions allowed Parks Canada's Underwater Archaeology Team to take incredible images of their work.
A full Mission wrap-up, along with a list of artifacts and more photos, are available on Parks Canada's website http://www.pc.gc.ca/eng/culture/franklin/mission2015.aspx
Media can access these new photos by contacting Parks Canada's media relations team at 1-855-862-1812, or by e-mail at [email protected]
