This is the story of how research and archaeology are helping to answer the question, what happened to Cook's ship?
Many Australians know that James Cook surveyed the east coast of Australia in 1770 while commanding the HMB Endeavour and the vessel retains important historical significance in the history of our nation.
The tall ship returned to England in 1771, but what happened to it after that? For almost 20 years the Australian National Maritime Museum has been working on that question and recent research and archaeological fieldwork it seems that we are getting much closer to answering it.
Join our Director & CEO, Kevin Sumption and the Head of Research, Dr Nigel Erskine as they discuss the fascinating post-Cook history of the Endeavour and the museum’s ongoing collaboration with the Rhode Island Marine Archaeology Project to find it's final resting place.
