Ship Discovery

Archaeologists have found a mid-19th century British navy ship in Mercy Bay, located in Canada’s Aulavik National Park. The H.M.S. Investigator was found 33 feet below the water’s surface and in “relatively good shape.”

The Investigator, led by Royal Navy Capt. Robert McClure, became trapped in ice in 1853. The 66-man crew, which had been on a mission to rescue two missing ships, was forced to abandon the craft.
