Celebrating the discovery of the Endurance with Dan Snow

To celebrate the discovery of Sir Ernest Shackleton’s sunken ship Endurance earlier this year, we are delighted to welcome TV presenter and historian Dan Snow to discuss his first-hand experience of the expedition.

Crushed by pack ice, the ship sank in 1915 at the heart of what Shackleton himself called ‘the worst portion of the worst sea on earth’ and was finally found in March 2022 3km beneath sea level using underwater robots, helicopters and other state-of-the-art technology.

The expedition was on behalf of our client, The Falklands Maritime Heritage Trust, which is dedicated to preserving the rich and varied seafaring history of the Falklands.

Dan Snow is a history broadcaster. He worked for the BBC for 15 years and wrote history books and now works at the online broadcaster History Hit that he co-founded in 2017. His podcast is the most listened to history podcast in Britain and he has hundreds of thousands of followers across various social media platforms. He studied history at Oxford University and left with a double first. He then started presenting military history programmes with his father, Peter Snow. Their series, Battlefield Britain, won a BAFTA award.

In 2022 Dan was on the expedition to find the lost ship wreck of Endurance, Shackleton’s ship which sank in 1915. Bizarrely they found the wreck 100 years to the day since Shackleton’s funeral.
