Falkland Islander marine archaeologist, Mensun Bound, who became famous when the discovery last March of Sir Ernest Shackleton's ship, the Endurance, will be talking about the historical expedition to Cunard line passengers.
Today, February 5th at 0700 GMT, a chunky, cherry-red ice breaker nosed its way out of Cape Town’s famous Table Bay, and shaped a course for Antarctica, 3000 nautical miles to the South West.
Last week the Falklands Maritime Heritage Trust announced the resumption of the search for Ernest Shackleton’s Endurance which lies in deep water beneath the ice of the Weddell Sea. A hundred years after his death Shackleton is still big news and media outlets around the world were quick to pick up on the story.
The Falklands Maritime Heritage Trust (FMHT) is planning an expedition – Endurance22 – to locate, survey and film the wreck of Sir Ernest Shackleton’s iconic ship, Endurance, which sank in the Weddell Sea in November 1915.
