HISTORY

HMS ENDEAVOUR belongs to Captain James Cook who made his first voyage te explore new continents. This ship was made in such a manner so that it facilitated explorers to endure long time voyage during exploration.

Captain James Cook was born in 1728 at York in Great Britain. He got permission by the govemment to explore new continents and isolated islands, so that they may appear on the world map. In the meantime, he could also know the pattern of the inhabitants, its flora and fauna. During his first voyage he got experience about astronomy, mathematics etc, so that he became commandant of the marine corporation. He did his first exploration in 1768 in Tahiti with the Company of some astronomers and in April 1769, Queen Oberea manifested her sympathy to Captain Cook thus nominating him master of a group of islands named "Iles de la Société". 

In June 1769, the ENDEAVOUR began another exploration. During mid October 1769 Captain Cook designed the chart of New Zealand as well as its natural characteristics. He came accross the place where Australia & New Zealand were separated thus becoming the first explorer of Australia. Furthermore he discovered New Guinea and explored the meridional and oriental coasts. On his way back to Great Britain he passed across the Cape of Good Hope and arrived home in July 1771. 

Unfortunately Feb 1774 was Captain Cook's last voyage as he got a tragic end - he was captured and killed by wild people in an unknown island.
