Win tickets to Death in the ice: the shocking story of Franklin’s final expedition
In 1845, Sir John Franklin set sail for the uncharted Canadian Arctic with hopes of uncovering the final stretch of the fabled North-West Passage. Tragically, all 129 men on the expedition were to perish in some of the most inhospitable conditions on earth after enduring lead poisoning, starvation, madness and even cannibalism.
Despite countless search expeditions – resulting in the loss of many more lives – the reason for the catastrophe had remained a mystery for 170 years.
But after the discovery of Franklin’s ships in 2014 and 2016, the National Maritime Museum is able to present Death in the ice: the shocking story of Franklin’s final expedition – a world-first exhibition that offers insight into how the tragedy unfolded.
Death in the ice paints a vivid picture of what humans are capable of when pushed to extremes.
