Captain Cook's "Endeavour" located, possibly.

Just off Newport, Rhode Island:

Quote:
The possible discovery of HMS Endeavour off the east coast of the US has been hailed as a “hugely significant moment” in Australian history, but researchers have warned they are yet to “definitively” confirm whether the wreck has been located.
The Gradiaun

Endeavour (known as Lord Sandwich 2 at the time) was one of 12 ships scuttled at the same time by the British Navy, so they won't be absolutely certain which one is which until they get the results of analysis of the timber.
