Ernest Shackleton’s Legendary Lost Ship Endurance Discovered

After 107 Years

This is by far the finest wooden shipwreck I have ever seen. It is upright, well proud of the seabed, intact, and in a brilliant state of preservation,” marine archaeologist Mensun Bound

The ship was found at a depth of nearly 2 miles, and just 4 miles south of its last known position,

 as calculated by Capt. Frank Worsley when the ship sank in 1915, according to the Falklands Maritime Heritage Trust.

The expedition, called Endurance22, was documented by History Hit, and that footage will be featured in a National Geographic special this autumn.
