Endurance discovery: Ernest Shackleton’s ship found 107 years after sinking off Antarctica

The wreck of Sir Ernest Shackleton’s ship Endurance has been found 107 years after it became trapped in sea ice and sank off the coast of Antarctica.

The Falklands Maritime Heritage Trust said Endurance was found at a depth of 3,008 metres and approximately four miles south of the position originally recorded by the ship’s captain Frank Worsley.

Pictures show the work carried out by the Endurance22 Expedition and the well preserved vessel, including the name, ‘Endurance’ arced across the stern.

The expedition’s director of exploration said footage of Endurance showed it to be intact and “by far the finest wooden shipwreck” he has seen.
