Captain Cook's ship Endeavour may have been found off the US coast
Researchers in Rhode Island, on the US East Coast, said this week that they had narrowed a decades-long search for the Endeavour to "one or two archaeological sites," just in time for the 250th anniversary of Cook's voyage from the UK to Australia aboard the vessel, the first recorded European contact with that continent.
In a statement, the Rhode Island Marine Archeology Project (RIMAP) said it would release more details and a 3D mockup of a prospective wreck site on September 21, with detailed examinations expected to begin early next year.
In later years Cook’s…uh…endeavors…have become more problematic. Colonization wasn’t pretty. That said, I always take notice when the sea releases one of its secrets. This is one of the bigger ones.
