Inuit Testimony and the Search for Franklin’s Ships

HMS Erebus in the Ice

HMS Erebus in the Ice, François Etienne Musin, 1846

David Woodman talks about his quest to find the missing wrecks of the Franklin Expedition, a mission that led him to the journals of the Arctic explorer Charles Hall who lived with the Inuit for four years and recorded their encounters with British explorers. Woodman is the author of Unravelling the Franklin Mystery: Inuit Testimony, a book that correctly predicted the site of HMS Erebus discovered by Parks Canada in 2014.
