Finding The Endurance!


Sir Ernest Shackleton's ship has been found, incredibly well preserved, in the Weddell Sea (Antarctica). It was found 3km deep, just 4 miles from where it sank 107 years ago.

The story of it's sinking is one of the most incredible survival stories ever told. Imagine being stranded without a ship, with no-one knowing you're missing, in one of the remotest and unforgiving places on earth. Yet everyone on the expedition survived.

You can find out more about this incredible story in this Adventure Solos presentation film: Tom Crean; Why haven't I heard about this man before.
