Talk: What happened to Cook's ship Endeavour?
The story of research and archaeology helping to answer the question. 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 following recent research and archaeological fieldwork believes we are getting much closer to answering it. Join Director & CEO, Kevin Sumption and the Head of Research, Dr Nigel Erskine as they discuss the fascinating history of the Endeavour after Cook and the museum’s ongoing collaboration with the Rhode Island Marine Archaeology Project.
