The Hunt For The Lost Franklin Expedition 12

In 1845, explorer John Franklin led an expedition from England to discover the Northwest Passage. Both ships were lost in the Arctic ice, leading to a decades-long search for the wreckage. Paul Watson joins us to talk about how marine science mixed with Inuit folklore lead to the discovery, which he writes about in “Ice Ghosts: The Epic Hunt for the Lost Franklin Expedition” (W.W. Norton and Co.). He’s in town for DMA Arts & Letters Live! Tuesday night at the Dallas Museum of Art.
