Join us on Friday, March 4, 2016 at the BCIT Marine Campus for this exciting presentation from one of Canada's leading experts on the Franklin Expedition.

Captain Woodman is well known as the author of two books about the ill-fated Sir John Franklin Expedition. Woodman's work concentrated on the profound importance of the Inuit testimony surrounding Franklin's fate and he was the first to analyze it in depth.

From 1992 to 2004 he led or participated in nine expeditions to Canada's Arctic in search of the wreck of one of the expedition ships, discovered by Parks Canada in 2014, and the grave site of Sir John Franklin himself.

Friday, March 4, 2016 - 1500 hours

BCIT Marine Campus (265 West Esplanade, North Vancouver)

RSVP: jane@bcshippingnews.com (Please note: there is no cost to attend but registration is recommended as space is limited).
