Re: Bri­tain to give Arc­tic ship­wrecks to Canada (Oct. 24)

It was fas­ci­nat­ing to read that Parks Canada has been granted of­fi­cial ju­ris­dic­tion of the Franklin Ex­pe­di­tion’s wa­tery his­tor­i­cal sites. How­ever, it is still to be de­ter­mined whether Bri­tain’s gift to Canada of the re­mains of ves­sels HMS Ere­bus and HMS Ter­ror will be known as ei­ther “Ex­pe­dixit,” “Ar­ti­faxit,” or sim­ply as “Ship­wrexit.”
