HISTORY OF THE HMS ENDEAVOUR SHIP: MODEL OF THE LONGBOAT
Launched in 1765 and chosen by James Cook three years later to prepare his historic voyage, the ship HMS Endeavour was part of important discoveries. Australia and Tahiti were discovered, and numerous islands were located; animal and plant species previously unknown in Europe were discovered; and for the first time the position in length was calculated with great precision by means of mathematical formulas.
The contribution of James Cook's voyages to navigation, seamanship and geographical exploration are of historical importance. Now you can see how the HMS Endeavour captain's longboat was thanks to the scale model 1:50 of Artesania Latina, a jewel of naval modeling.
