HMS Terror Wreck Finally Discovered
It took nearly two centuries to find.
In 2016, The Arctic Research Foundation of Canada finally located the wreckage of HMS Terror, over 170 years after the men of the Franklin Expedition vanished.
The Terror lay in the middle of Terror Bay in what was considered "pristine condition." Many of the cabins and windows are still fully intact, with partitions still standing. Scientists now face the task of trying to piece together exactly what happened to Terror and its sister ship on the voyage, HMS Erebus, and how they ended up in their final resting spots.
