On April 15th of this year, it will be the 105th anniversary of the sinking of the RMS Titanic. 150 victims of the disaster are buried in three Halifax cemetaries. Barrie Clarke (Retired Faculty member) and a team of fellow experts, decided to try and locate the location for the quarry where the stones produced, using scientific methods. Little to no documentation exists for these stones. It is a tale of discovery that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle would have included in his Sherlock Holmes novels.
