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.
