One of two British explorer ships that vanished in the Arctic more than 160 years ago has been found, Canada's prime minister says.
Stephen Harper said it was unclear which ship had been found, but photo evidence confirmed it was one of them.
Sir John Franklin led the two ships and 129 men in 1845 to chart the Northwest Passage in the Canadian Arctic.
The expedition's disappearance shortly after became one of the great mysteries of the age of Victorian exploration.
En mängd expeditioner gav sig ut för att leta reda på Franklins expedition; en del av dem fick i sin tur räddas, eller försvann. Sammanlagt gav de betydligt mer kunskap än vad Franklins folk själva någonsin hade kunnat hinna.
