Terror Bay is an Arctic waterway in Nunavut. Called ‘Amitruq’ in Inuktitut, it is located in the southwestern side of King William Island. Lost for over 100 years, the discovery of the well-preserved HMS Terror in September 2016 has provided historians with an incredible treasure trove of history. In 1845, the Royal Navy ships, HMS Erebus and HMS Terror, departed England in search of the Northwest Passage. HMS Erebus and HMS Terror were equipped with novel auxiliary-steam screw propulsion systems and lavishly provisioned for a three-year voyage. They were both lost later that year.
