Detail of the Franklin party area

 

 

This detail of the area around the southern coast of King William Land (Island) shows the path taken by the party of Franklin survivors who met with the Inuit at Douglas Bay. This same party proceeded eastward, burying its dead as it went, past the Peffer River and as far as the Todd Islets. It was on one of these islets, known in Inuktitut as Keeuna, that the five bodies of Franklin sailors were (re)discovered in the summer of 2000.
