The legendary sunk ship is found


Archeologists of the Australian national sea museum have defined the exact, according to them, place of flooding of the vessel HMS Endeavour which in the 18th century was ordered by the British researcher captain James Cook. This site is located near the island Got in the gulf Narragansett (the State of Rhode Island, the USA). The The Age edition reports about it. According to experts, exact identification of fragments of the ship will be possible only after underwater excavation which carrying out is planned for the next year. Archeologists don't know yet what remained from the HMS Endeavour manufactured of wood of an oak and a pine and which has lain at the bottom of more than 200 years. It is expected that on September 21 the staff of the Australian museum will submit the detailed three-dimensional image of a relief of a bottom in the alleged place of flooding of the vessel. The government of the State of Rhode Island has stated that the Australian officials should conduct negotiations to get permission to transportation of any fragments of HMS Endeavour to Australia. Employees of the museum hope that they will be able to expose some artifacts found on the place of excavation in April, 2020, in 250-year anniversary of arrival of James Cook in Australia. HMS Endeavour has been constructed in 1764. In the 1768th the vessel under James Cook's command has left Plymouth (England) and has gone to the first global cruise. In April, 1770 Cook has arrived to east coast of Australia. It is considered that after the travel the ship has been converted in the warship and is sunk in the 1778th during the war of independence of the USA.
