More information about the ongoing Franklin expedition archaeology in Canada’s north

This happens to me all the time: I talk about something in class, and then the topic comes up in the media.  In yesterday’s Times Colonist Jack Knox wrote an article about the Coast Guard getting recognized for their role in the discovery of the HMS Erebus.  I then came across a press release from the priminister’s office from March 4 indicating that a spring dive project is in the works, creating an opportunity to explore the wreck and do some preliminary reconnaissance (isn’t it interesting that Harper and his wife received medals from the Canadian Geographic Society as recognition for their role in this historic find?!)
