HMS Terror's resting place given protection

Ottawa has set aside nearly 60 square kilometres of seabed off the coast of Nunavut to keep gawkers and scavengers away from one of Canada's most famous shipwrecks.

The HMS Terror is one of two ships from the Franklin expedition that became trapped in ice in the Arctic in 1845, ultimately leading to the deaths of all 129 men on board, including expedition leader Sir John Franklin.
