A team of Australian divers will close the cover of the 25-year maritime mystery surrounding the final resting place of Captain Cook's Endeavor.

Four experts will delve into the depths of Newport Harbor, Rhode Island, on a renewed search of the ship, which disappeared from records in 1778.

After his famous voyage with Cook in 1768-1771, he was sold to John Wilkinson in 1775 and renamed Lord Sandwich before the archives named him one of the 13 ships that arrived at the American port in 1778.

The marine archaeologist based in Sydney, James Hunter, of the Australian National Maritime Museum, will be one of the men in charge of discovering the potential history, reported The Australian.

Dr. Hunter said the group of ships was between 15 and 25 meters below the surface, but Endeavor would now probably be one of five in the area.

"It's about five ships of the same century, the same decade, about the same size, mainly England," he said.

"What you have is several wreck sites built at the same time and they do not have plates that say, 'Hey, I'm this boat'."

Dr. Hunter said that being able to identify the ship would depend on meticulous research, which involves tracing structures in muddy and muddy waters.

"You get this helmet section that's buried, but if you're lucky, you have elements from that site that are above the mud line, we see the total length of the hull, if the woods are exposed, we'll look at those woods.

He added that often the most crucial gifts were given in minute detail, such as the size of each structure and the types of materials.
