Abstract: The surroundings of globular clusters in the outer halo are one of the best places to look for the ghost of an ancient dwarf galaxy. We present the first preliminary results from a long term project designed to search for tidal debris around remote halo globular clusters, debris that may be the vestiges of the larger systems in which these clusters formed.
