Researchers in the US believe they may be a step closer to locating the ship in which British explorer Captain James Cook sailed to Australia in 1768.
The Rhode Island Marine Archaeology Project (Rimap) has known for some time the ship was scuttled in Newport Harbour, off the US coast, in 1778.

But they now believe they have narrowed down the search to a cluster of five shipwrecks on the seafloor.
The researchers plan to investigate the ships and their artefacts further.
They are also appealing for funds to build the right facilities for handling and storing items retrieved from the sea.
"All of the 13 ships lost in Newport during the Revolution are important to American history, but it will be a national celebration in Australia when RIMAP identifies the Lord Sandwich ex Endeavour," the researchers said in a statement.

A ship that went where possibly none of the crew wanted to go, and must a have been miserable all those years aboard voyaging into the unknown.
