What do CSS Acadia and the Rock Star Sting have in Common? Part 1



CBC Radio and television broadcast a story on November 5 about the famous British musician Sting and his new album, The Last Ship. The report features Sting's first Canadian interview about his new album. The story by Susan Ormiston explores a surprising connection between our museum’s largest artifact, CSS Acadia and the British superstar who was very interested to hear about our 100-year-old ship.

Hint:
