Captain Cook's vessel Endeavour is finally found

Captain Cook's famous ship has seemingly been discovered off New England 230 years since it was sold, sunk and forgotten.

The Endeavour is one of the most famous ships in naval history and was used by Captain James Cook to discover the East Coast of Australia in 1770. 

The last sighting of the Endeavour was around 1778 when it is believed the ship was sold, renamed the Lord Sandwich, and then used to transport British troops during the American Revolution.

Archaeologists believe they have found the scuttled remains of the Endeavour just off the coast of Newport, R.I., in Narragansett Bay.
