He and his crew became the first European expedition to map the entire coast of New Zealand, and later, the first to reach Australia's east coast. "They took everything off of the ships and sunk them right before the Battle of Newport".

Archaeologists from the Rhode Island Marine Archaeology Project (RIMAP) and the Australian National Maritime Museum will announce their latest findings Friday from 5-6 p.m.at Gurney's Newport Resort & Marina, according to a statement from Kathy Abbass, the executive director and principal investigator for RIMAP.

The ship's final resting place has eluded archeologists ever since, but now a team of Australian researchers believe they have pinpointed the vessel in Newport Harbour. The team has found what appear to be 10 of the 13 transport ships, Abbass said earlier this year at the organization's annual meeting. But just years after carrying Captain James Cook on his epic journey from England to the eastern shores of Australia, the HMS Endeavour slipped out of commission, and out of the history books, her whereabouts a mystery.

"A lot more detailed work, analysis and research has to happen before we can definitively say we have found the remains of James Cook's HMB Endeavour", Mr Sumption cautioned.

Sumption says it's only in about five metres of water, but not much is recognisable of a ship of 350 tons.

"Basically what we know is the size of the Endeavour hull [and] a ship of that type uses certain dimensions of timber", he told the Guardian.

Endeavour replica towed into Whitby
Hunt for famed 'Endeavour' ship could be nearing an end

"People could go on board and see a part of the real Endeavour".

Definitive proof will come from forensic tests on the timbers.

One of two full-sized replicas of HMS Endeavour is towed into Whitby Harbor in the north of England-where Captain Cook began his voyage to Australia-on June 1, 2018.

The nonprofit group has spent more than 25 years searching for the Endeavour, as well as dozens of other vessels lost off the coast of the state during the American Revolution.

Investigators will also look for evidence that the wreck belongs to a prison ship-the last usage of the Endeavour was for carrying prisoners of war. Remarkably, the Endeavour rounded the Cape of Good Hope, at the southernmost tip of Africa, and made its way back to the British-occupied island of Saint Helena, almost three years after it had departed England. The state of Rhode Island is presently the Endeavour site's owner (whichever wreck site it might be), but if found and raised, artifacts from the vessel could be the subject of an global custody battle between claimants. "It'll be bits of wood and vessel that might be recovered".
