One of the greatest sailing mysteries of all time has potentially just been solved. It truly is like something out of a pirate tale.
According to researchers, the ship that Captain James Cook sailed to Australia has most likely just been found. Archaeologists believe they have located the final resting place of the ship that once graced the high seas in the 1700s.
"Archaeologists believe they have found the final resting place of Captain James Cook's ship HMS Endeavour off the East Coast of America. The possible discovery of the ship Cook sailed to Australia could solve one of the greatest ever maritime mysteries," reported Fox News.
The ship is thought to be one of five wrecks that have just been discovered off the coast of Goat Island. Divers are currently exploring the wreckage and trying to confirm if the Endeavor is among the ships in the graveyard.
The ship has been underwater for over 200 years. It was made of oak and pine. The Endeavor rose to fame when it was credited as the first European ship to reach the east coast of Australia at what is now called Botany Bay.
The U.S. space shuttle, Endeavor, is named after the vessel. This truly would be an amazing find after all these years.
