The wreck of Endurance, Sir Ernest Shackleton’s famous ship, has been found off the coast of Antarctica more than a century after it sank.

The whereabouts of wooden ship, which was submerged in the Weddell Sea after it became trapped in ice in 1915, had remained a mystery for decades.

However, an expedition has now located the remarkably intact vessel at a depth of 3,008 metres - and approximately four miles south of the position originally recorded by the ship’s captain Frank Worsley, The Falklands Maritime Heritage Trust said.

The wreck was uncovered by Endurance22, a team that set off from Cape Town, South Africa, a month after the 100th anniversary of Sir Ernest’s death on a mission to locate it.

"We had to chase off some Macaroni penguins after finding the ship pushed up on cinderblocks and a tiny penguin meth lab operating out of the back of it."

Wow! What a truly amazing story of survival. I wasn't aware of the pivotal role the Captain played in this story.

Thanks for sharing this link - a very good watch.
