Arctic Shipwreck Conference in BC
Thanks to Dave Woodman for alerting us to an upcoming conference of the Underwater Archaeological Society of British Columbia, which features a host of talks which are sure to be of interest to anyone with the Frankin, among them Marc-Andre Bernier, head of Parks Canada's Underwater Archaeology program, on the wreck of HMS "Investigator," as well as Dr. Tim Ball on Jens Munk, Jacques Marc on the "Maud," and Dave Woodman himself on Franklin. You can get more information on the conference, and register online, at their site at www.uasbc.com. I certainly wish I could attend, and would urge everyone who can to do so.
