This is the amazing story in words and images of the historic discovery of the wreck of Ernest Shackleton’s Endurance, deep beneath the ice of Antarctica.

In March 2022, an international polar expedition team made an astonishing find: the wreck of Ernest Shackleton’s legendary Endurance, lost in 1915 after being crushed by ice and then swallowed by the Weddell Sea. The harrowing story of Shackleton’s survival and rescue of all 27 men aboard is well known, but the ship has lain unseen for a century, 10,000 feet underwater—until now. The vessel remains incredibly intact, as crystal-clear photography and digital scans from the expedition reveal. A thrilling firsthand account of the expedition coauthored by its leader and deputy leader, this is the first and only book to fully document the discovery, produced in full cooperation with the Falklands Maritime Heritage Trust.
John Shears was the expedition leader for Endurance22, the mission to find Endurance. He is a polar geographer and expedition leader with over 30 years’ experience of working in both Antarctica and the Arctic. He lives in Bluntisham, a village north of Cambridge in the east of England, and grew up in Exeter.

Nico Vincent was Endurance22's subsea manager. He oversaw the equipment and deployment of the expedition's autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs), and was one of the first eyewitnesses to the discovery of the Endurance wreck. He is a subsea engineer and surveyor based in Roquefort la Bédoule, France, near Marseille. He grew up in Champdor in the French Alps.

Donald Lamont is a retired British diplomat and former governor of the Falkland Islands and commissioner to South Georgia. He lives in the UK.

Princess Anne will contribute a foreword to the book.
