Closing in on the Endeavour Bark with Dr. Kathy Abbass

RIMAP's historical and archaeological research to locate the 18th-century British transport shipwreck sites in Newport Harbor has determined that the Lord Sandwich ex Endeavour was one of five vessels sent to a particular spot off the Point in 1778, RIMAP has located 10 of the 13 ships in that 1778 fleet, and they are all worthy of study, but the first phase of the research to locate the Endeavour in the limited study area is coming to a close. Once the preliminary phase is done, then RIMAP will determine which site is which ship. This presentation will share the latest research and review the international interest in RIMAP's progress to identify that iconic vessel.
