Endurance found, 3 km down, remarkably well preserved. https://www.bbc.com/news/science-enviro ... 662541.amp

Dan Snow has been on-board the search ship for the last few weeks and has been issuing Podcasts under his History Hits banner. Look for Endurance22 as a tag.
My avatar was a scientific result that was later found to be 'mistaken' - I rarely claim to be 100% correct
ETA 5/8/20: I've been advised that the result was correct, it was the initial interpretation that needed to be withdrawn

There’s a brass band piece about Endurance, don’t know if this is the best recording, but it’s a nice piece of music.

This is a great thread about the marine life growing on the ship.
it's okay to say "I don't know"

I was taken aback by both the beautiful state of preservation and the immense depth. I had no idea but rather assumed the wreck would be in shallow water on an Antarctic continental shelf.
