Nearly 250 years after its final location was lost, Captain James Cook’s HMS Endeavor just might have been rediscovered

Archaeologists from Rhode Island have narrowed down the search to one or two sites along the United States’ East Coast. The HMS Endeavour famously first brought Europeans to the Australian continent in the 1770s. 

The Rhode Island Marine Archaeology Project (RIMAP) is slated to release more details and a 3D model of the wreck site later this week. RIMAP is keeping the exact location off Rhode Island secret given the historic nature of the wreck. More detailed examinations will begin next year. Maybe they are hiring underwater archaeology photographers

The ship was purposely sunk in 1778 after being decommissioned. If found, we are likely to see a diplomatic struggle over who can salvage, research, or claim possession of the ship between the United States and Britain. Read more about the discover in this BBC article
