The Recovery and Conservation of Relics from HMB Endeavour.
By: Dennis Callegari.
When Cook's Endeavour ran aground off the northern coast of Australia in 1770, six cannon and an anchor were abandoned. They were recovered between 1969 and 1972, and a project instituted to conserve the important artifacts. This excellent book covered the loss of the cannon, the search and recovery, legalities of the find, and conservation. A fascinating book, of interest to the diver, maritime historian and material conservationist.
