In 1845, John Franklin sailed from England with HMS Erebus and HMS Terror, looking for the Northwest Passage. Both ships were abandoned in 1848, and the crews walked to their deaths across the Arctic. In the decades that followed, searches found relics of the expedition and documents detailing its grim fate, but the final resting places of the ships remained a mystery – until one of them was found in 2014.
