“Yes, it is actually a slightly special story. We were really looking for a completely different wreck, from the 16th century. As early as 2005, I got in touch with a man whose father had found a wreck outside Dyngö when he was fishing for trout,” said von Arbin.

The father who found the wreck was no longer alive, but the son tipped off von Arbin about the find and told him that he had material that von Arbin and his team could see.

Endurance was crushed by the sea-ice and sank in 3,000m of water
Vraget af Endurance er et af de allermest ikoniske skibsvrag siden skibet blev knust af havisen in 1915 og sank på 3000 meters dybde

Vraget af Shackleton's Endurance lokaliseret

Vraget af HMS Endurance befinder sig på 3.000 meters dybdet i et farvande der stort set er permanent dækket af tyk is, den samme havis, der fangede og derefter knuste skroget på Shackletons skib.
