Dr. Chris Harvey-Clark (Dalhousie University) will describe the findings of an August 2018 expedition to collect benthic and animal samples for toxicology, and document the wreck of HMS Raleigh, a Hawkins-class heavy cruiser launched in 1921 and lost in 1922 at the site of the most prominent lighthouse in Labrador, Point Amour.
