For any copyright, please send me a message. The ship was used by the explorer to “discover” Australia in the 18th century. But it became a prisoner ship and was eventually destroyed by the British. Now maritime archaeologists believe they have found it in Newport Harbour, in Rhode Island. But experts still need to identify the ship, which could take months or even years. Kathy Abbass, of the Rhode Island Marine Archaeology Project, told Live Science: “We do not think we are going to find something that says ‘Captain Cook slept here’ — that is not likely. “But if we find some of the smaller stuff that is consistent with how we know she was used — as a transport and as a prison ship in Newport, then we know we have got her. “Everything we see this year is consistent with it being the Endeavour, and we have seen nothing that says it can’t be.” James Cook used the Endeavour ship to sail around the world between 1768 and 1771. The ship started as a coal carrier vessel. But some of its voyages included its first scientific mission to Tahiti. The crew of the ship then went to the South Pacific. They mapped the coast of New Zealand before then “discovering” Australia. After arriving in Botany Bay in 1770, the crew recorded they had seen local flora and fauna. They also experienced the first European sighting of a kangaroo. The Endeavour was sold by the Royal Navy to a private buyer after returning to England. It was then used during the American War of Independence to take British troops across the Atlantic to fight. The British also used it as a prison ship during the war. But it was then intentionally sunk in 1778, along with 12 other vessels, to stop a French invasion. The Endeavour is now believed to be located near the La Liberté, which is another sunken ship found in Newport Harbor. James Cook was born in the Marton area of Middlesbrough in 1728. He joined the Merchant Navy at the age of 18 and worked his way up through the ranks. This meant he could travel to places in the world that many westerners had never been before. He is most known for having the first recorded European contact with the eastern coastline of Australia and Hawaii. Trending He was also the first to sail all the way around New Ze Captain Cook was killed by Hawaiians during his third and final expedition. A fight started between the sailors and the natives after they stole one of his smaller boats. But he tried to kidnap and ransom their king so they stabbed him to death.

Berkley is a town in Bristol County, Massachusetts, United States, located south of Boston and east of Providence, Rhode Island. The population was 6,411 at the 2010 census, making it the least populated town in the county.
The present town of Berkley, then belonging to the neighboring towns of Dighton and Taunton, was first settled in 1638. It was officially incorporated as a separate town in 1735. The town was named for the philosopher and bishop George Berkeley, who lived in Newport, Rhode Island from 1728 to 1731. The change in the spelling to 'Berkley' was likely due to the carelessness of the engrossing clerk of the Massachusetts General Court.
According to the United States Census Bureau, the town has a total area of 17.4 square miles, of which 16.5 square miles is land and 0.93 square miles, or 5.24%, is water. The town is bordered by the Taunton River and Dighton to the west, Taunton to the north and northeast, Lakeville to the east, and the Assonet Bay and Freetown to the south. The town is located 35 miles south of Boston, 22 miles east of Providence, Rhode Island, and 30 miles northwest of the Cape Cod Canal.
Near the southwestern corner of the town is Dighton Rock State Park, the home of Dighton Rock, a tidal boulder along the Taunton River that is well known for its strange markings, which have been totally or partly attributed to Norsemen, Wampanoags, or Portuguese explorer Miguel Corte-Real. At the southern tip of Berkley Neck which points into the confluence of the Taunton River and the Assonet River, there is a small island, named 'Conspiracy Island', whose name origin remains obscure.
The highest point in Berkley is the summit of Bryant Hill near the southern border of the town, at 167 feet above sea level.
The town can be accessed by two state routes, Route 24 and Route 79. Route 24, a four-lane divided freeway, bisects the town, and includes one exit for the town at Padelford Street. Route 79 passes along the town's border with Lakeville, and meets Route 140 just across the town line in Taunton. The Berkley–Dighton Bridge crosses the Taunton River to the Segreganset neighborhood of Dighton. The one-lane bridge, designed in 1896 was built in the 1890s, is the only bridge to cross the river between the Brightman Street Bridge between Fall River and Somerset, and the Plain Street Bridge in Taunton, a distance of 12.5 miles. The construction of a temporary bridge began in the summer of 2009. The project expects the original bridge to be torn down and replaced by a new bridge to be completed in 2015.
Myricks is an association community or populated place and a junction of railroad lines in Berkley.
As of the census of 2000, there were 5,749 people, 1,843 households, and 1,566 families residing in the town. The population density was 347.6 people per square mile. There were 1,885 housing units at an average density of 114.0 per square mile. The racial makeup of the town was 96.7% White, 0.6% African American, 0.14% Native American, 0.4% Asian, 0.03% Pacific Islander, 1.06% from other races, and 1.11% from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 1.0% of the population.
There were 1,843 households out of which 47.1% had children under the age of 18 living with them, 73.8% were married couples living together, 7.5% had a female householder with no husband present, and 15.0% were non-families. 10.8% of all households were made up of individuals and 3.9% had someone living alone who was 65 years of age or older. The average household size was 3.11 and the average family size was 3.35.

To fully explore and understand the ocean, we can no longer rely on a handful of large, expensive research vessels and vehicles. We truly need all hands on deck to do it.
On November 8-9, 2018, we brought together leaders and changemakers in ocean exploration, entertainment, recreation, and art to imagine new ways to empower an open, inclusive global community of ocean explorers. Our goal is to imagine creative ways to make the ocean so pervasive in modern culture that everyone has a positive association with and understanding of the sea.

Martha's Vineyard Fast Ferry 4
Martha's Vineyard Fast Ferry From Oaks Bluff To Providence R.I. (Rhode Island)
Martha's Vineyard (Wampanoag: Noepe, /mɑːr.ðəz.viːnjʊd/, often called just the Vineyard) is an island located south of Cape Cod in Massachusetts that is known for being an affluent summer colony. It includes the smaller Chappaquiddick Island which is usually connected to the Vineyard, though storms and hurricanes have been known to separate the two. The last such separation of the islands was in 2007 and the two islands are again connected as of April 2, 2015.
It is the 58th largest island in the United States, with a land area of 100 square miles (260 km2), and the third largest on the East Coast of the United States, after Long Island and Mount Desert Island. The island constitutes the bulk of Dukes County, Massachusetts, which also includes the Elizabeth Islands and the island of Nomans Land.
The Vineyard was home to one of the earliest known deaf communities in the United States; consequently, a special sign language developed on the island called Martha's Vineyard Sign Language (MVSL).
The 2010 census reported a year-round population of 16,535 residents, although the summer population can swell to more than 100,000 people. About 56% of the Vineyard's 14,621 homes are seasonally occupied.
Martha's Vineyard is primarily known as a summer colony, and it is only accessible by boat and air. However, its year-round population has considerably increased since the 1960s. The island's year-round population increased about a third each decade from 1970 to 2000, for a total of 145% or about 3 to 4% per year (46%, 30%, and 29% in each respective decade). The population of the Vineyard was 14,901 in the 2000 Census and was estimated at 15,582 in 2004. (Dukes County was 14,987 in 2000 and 15,669 in 2004). Dukes County includes the six towns on Martha's Vineyard and Gosnold; it increased by more than 10 percent between 2000 and 2010, according to Census data released in 2011, gaining nearly 1,548 residents. The Island's population increased from 14,987 to 16,535.
A study by the Martha's Vineyard Commission found that the cost of living on the island is 60% higher than the national average, and housing prices are 96% higher. A study of housing needs by the Commission found that the average weekly wage on Martha's Vineyard was 71% of the state average, the median home price was 54% above the state's and the median rent exceeded the state's by 17%.

Middletown Rhode Island (RI) Real Estate Tour
Tour Middletown, RI neighborhoods, condominium developments, subdivisions, schools, landmarks, recreational areas, and town offices.
Middletown, Rhode Island is located on historic Aquidneck Island, between Newport and Portsmouth. The community is bounded by Rhode Island Sound on the south, Narragansett Bay on the west, and the Sakonnet River on the east. Middletown is semi-agricultural with a diverse landscape. Delicate sand dunes broken up by a partially rocky coastline and snow white beaches give this community a seaside flair. Endless stone walls line the landscape, contributing to Middletown's classic New England ambience.
Middletown's rich history is deeply bound to the endless promise and mystery of the sea. Early native settlers relied upon fishing and hunting for sustenance, maintaining a fairly quiet existence before the outbreak of a long war between the Narragansetts and the Wampanoags. After many years of struggle the Narragansetts, the largest branch of New England's Algonquin family, emerged victorious.
In 1524, Giovanni da Verranzo became the first European explorer to make contact with the Indians of Narragansett Bay, although long-term relations between the natives and Europeans were not established until Dutch traders arrived in 1614. In 1638, Roger Williams facilitated the trasfer of Aqidneck Island to several of his fellow exiles, the proprietors of the ever-expanding Providence colony.
At the time, what is now Middletown was included within the jurisdinction of Newport, anticipating a long historical association between the two communities. As Newport developed into one of America's leading commercial seaports during the colonial era, farms began appearing all over Middletown's countryside; local farmers now had an international market for their goods, and agriculture flourished in the area over the next two centuries. Wealthy Newport residents soon established country estates in the village, and continued growth and development led to Middletown's establishment as a separate town in 1743.
Many hallmarks of Middletown's illustrious history survive today, with luxurious colonial mansions, antique farmhouses, one-room schoolhouses, St. George's School, and the historic Middletown Town Hall just some of the sites enjoyed by residents and visitors alike. Middletown's coast offers marvelous fishing, boating, surfing and swimming facilities. Abounding in recreational and cultural activities, Middletown remains a thriving New England community with a rich living history. For other town tours visit . For towns in RI visit .

Rhode Island with Youngblood
Rhode Island (Listeni/ˌroʊd ˈaɪlɨnd/ or /rɵˈdaɪlɨnd/), officially the State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations, is a state in the New England region of the United States. Rhode Island is the smallest in area, the eighth least populous, but the second most densely populated of the 50 US states (behind New Jersey). Rhode Island is bordered by Connecticut to the west and Massachusetts to the north and east, and it shares a water boundary with New York's Long Island to the southwest. It also has the longest official name of all the states.
Rhode Island was the first of the original Thirteen Colonies to declare independence from British rule, declaring itself independent on May 4, 1776, two months before any other colony. The state was also the last of the thirteen original colonies to ratify the United States Constitution
Despite its name, most of Rhode Island is located on the mainland of the United States. The official name of the state is State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations, which is derived from the merger of two settlements. Rhode Island colony was founded near present-day Newport, on what is now commonly called Aquidneck Island, the largest of several islands in Narragansett Bay. Providence Plantations was the name of the colony founded by Roger Williams in the area now known as the city of Providence.
It is unclear how Aquidneck Island came to be known as Rhode Island, although there are two popular theories.
Explorer Giovanni da Verrazzano in 1524 noted the presence of an island near the mouth of Narragansett Bay, which he likened to the Ottoman island of Rhodes (part of modern Greece). Subsequent European explorers were unable to precisely identify the island that Verrazzano had named. The Pilgrims who later colonized the area assumed that Verrazzano's Rhodes was Aquidneck.
Giovanni da Verrazzano named a place on Rhode Island Puntum Iovianum in honor of his friend Paolo Giovio (Jovium in Latin) (1483 - 1542) humanist and historian. Giovio owned the Codex Cellere of Giovanni da Verrazzano containing the text of his first trip.
A second theory concerns the fact that Adriaen Block passed by Aquidneck during his expeditions in the 1610s, described in a 1625 account of his travels as an island of reddish appearance (in 17th-century Dutch, een rodlich Eylande). Historians have theorized that this reddish appearance resulted from either red autumn foliage or red clay on portions of the shore.
Verrazzano Monument, Providence, Rhode Island.
The earliest documented use of the name Rhode Island for Aquidneck was in 1637, by Roger Williams. The name was officially applied to the island in 1644 with these words: Aquethneck shall be henceforth called the Isle of Rodes or Rhode-Island. The name Isle of Rodes is found used in a legal document as late as 1646. Dutch maps as late as 1659 call the island Red Island (Roodt Eylant).
Williams was a theologian forced out of the Massachusetts Bay Colony. Seeking religious and political tolerance, he and others founded Providence Plantations as a free proprietary colony. Providence referred to the divine providence and plantations referred to an English term for a colony.
State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations is the longest official name of any state in the Union. On June 25, 2009, the General Assembly voted to allow the people to decide whether to keep the name or drop and Providence Plantations due to the misperception that the name related to slavery. The referendum election was held on this subject during the November 2, 2010 elections, and the people overwhelmingly (78% to 22%) voted to keep the original name.
