Cook and his crew had sailed through the Hawaiian Islands little more than a year earlier when they anchored off Kaua'i to re-provision his flagship Resolution and a smaller vessel, Discovery. This was Cook 's third Pacific voyage, but his first to explore the North Pacific.

James Cook FRS (7 November 1728 – 14 February 1779) was a British explorer, navigator, cartographer, and captain in the British Royal Navy.

Captain James Cook's life was spared by "sheer luck" after the Endeavour landed at an Aboriginal meeting place used to settle disputes among clans.

The State Library of Queensland's Des Crump said that was just one of the untold stories that would be shared in the exhibition Spoken: Celebrating Queensland Languages.

"If they landed 500 metres either side of where they were, there would be no Cook, there would be no Endeavour we would know," he said.

New Study Claims We Probably Didn't Wipe Out The Neanderthals After All

  New Study Claims We Probably Didn't Wipe Out The Neanderthals After All They disappeared about 40,000 years ago. Despite their rich culture, their robust anatomy, and the many similarities we shared, Neanderthals vanished from the face of the Earth. Why? The reasons have long been debated, with many hypotheses suggesting that competition with the potentially superior anatomically modern humans (AMHs) drove the Neanderthals' decline. But new research indicates that might not be so. "Did Neanderthals disappear because of us?" ask the researchers, led by bioscience engineer and philosopher Krist Vaesen from the Eindhoven University of Technology in the Netherlands."No, this study suggests.

Captain James Cook (1728-1779) of the Royal Navy was a British explorer, navigator and cartographer. He joined the navy in 1755 and served in the Cook went on to map the coast lines of Nova Scotia and Newfoundland. His eye for detail caught the attention of the powers to be and set in

"He could have landed on one of the clan's estate areas, which would have been punishable by death, but because it was in a meeting place, the two nations were obliged to talk to each other and negotiate some sort of living arrangement.

"Fortunately, one of the first things Cook did was gift some fish to the local Guugu Yimithirr people.

"It puts some context in for living together and sharing that space for the 48 days that Cook took to repair the Endeavour.

"That's a story that has been passed down for the years."

The exhibition features Captain Cook’s Endeavour journal, the Aboriginal oral history of the British explorer’s historic voyage, and the revival of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander languages.

The Captain Cook Birthplace Museum marks the site of Cook 's birthplace in Marton on the outskirts of Middlesbrough and is situated in the beautiful landscaped grounds of Stewart Park. Cook was promoted to post- captain of Greenwich Hospital and wrote up his account of the voyage.

Cook amends his journal. The fabrication of Cook 's 'possession ceremony' was proposed in the book Lying for the Admiralty (2018).[5] Two months after Three months later, at Possession Island in Queensland , he claimed possession of the east coast for Britain. In his journal, Cook wrote: "I now

Academic and Bulgun Warra man Harold Ludwick shares how a Guugu Yimithirr elder used a broken spear as a peace offering to Cook and his men, moored off the coast of what is now known as Cooktown, following a tussle over a female turtle on the deck of the Endeavour.

His oral account complements Cook’s observations in the 251-year-old journal, which is on loan from the National Library of Australia.

That library's assistant director of exhibitions, Peter Appleton, said the journal was a prized item that had not left the gallery in Canberra in more than a decade.

He said in the journal – written by Cook himself, with dates in red ink on one side and darker ink on the other – the captain talks about what happened on a particular day.

"The journal that James Cook wrote in his own hand and its tracking, so he has red ink on one side with dates and in darker on the other side, he talks about what happened on a particular day," he said.

"He's got major events there like, for example, when he first spots the east coast of Australia."

Mr Appleton said the State Library had chosen to display the page featuring a list of words Cook learnt when meeting Aboriginal groups.

"[Cook] is a bit of a contentious figure, but he initially led a scientific mission of discovery, and with that word list, you're getting the first attempt of two very different cultures to communicate," he said.

"I hope people in Queensland will enjoy seeing the journal in the exhibition."
