Cultural appropriation #534

Recommended Posts

https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2018/sep/19/wreck-of-captain-cooks-hms-endeavour-discovered-off-coast-of-america

The possible discovery of HMS Endeavour off the east coast of the US has been hailed as a “hugely significant moment” in Australian history, but researchers have warned they are yet to “definitively” confirm whether the wreck has been located.

On Wednesday Fairfax Media reported archaeologists from the Rhode Island Marine Archaeology Project, or Rimap, had pinpointed the final resting place of the famous vessel in which Captain James Cook reached Australia in 1770.

 

hello.  Just to let all dosbodders know that cook was from smoggy land and served his apprenticeship in Whitby. The Endeavour was built in Whitby. 

Just thought you needed to know that as due to cultural appropriation, you wouldn’t really know from the article.

Well the So-Called BBC appear at first glance to have done this better. In the story of Cook and his Whitby built boat, is this hyperlink

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-york-north-yorkshire-44335848

A replica of the ship Captain James Cook used to sail to Australia and New Zealand has arrived in Whitby to form part of a new tourist attraction.

The full-scale copy of Endeavour was towed 40 miles by sea from Middlesbrough, arriving late on Friday.

It is set to be transformed into a floating museum due to open later this year to mark the 250th anniversary of Cook's first expedition to the Pacific.

Yorkshire-born Cook began his maritime career in Whitby.

 

however, the truth as always lays somewhere else. 

This particulat boat is referred to in town an “Tindeavour”. It is not a replica, it is in fact a Tees barge, a metal barge at that, dressed up to vaguely look like the endeavour (it’s painted the same colour as the actual replica). 

Wecome to theme park Whitby where there isn’t a fishing boat left and all the fishermens’ cottages are inhabited by white settlers. 

xD

oh and it’s not going to be a museum, it’s going to be a floating pub/nightclub. Nice.

Well, the spirit is right -- Cook's ships were all converted coal (I think) ships, albeit Whitby Katts.

But the detail isn't right

Cook's Endeavour should be something like this:

41144s01.jpg or 41144s05.jpg

Whereas they've got this:

_101849894_cag_hm_bark_arrives_whitby-00

They might as well have bought one of those 'pirate* ships' that cruises the med tourist resorts.

[* Arrr.  Here's hopin' it be a bountiful international talk like a pirate day** for yer all. ]

[** Unlike the very unsuccessful 'talk like an international pirate day' -- all pirates are from Cornwall, or maybe Devon at a push]

Out of reps 👍

there are  loads of people wandering round impersonating jack sparrow, so no, I don’t think they all came from the West Country. Some come from Middlesbrough. o.O

Ooh. Wrong there.

Boro did not exist, in any notable form, until late 1800s.

Population in 1801 - 25. 

Fuckall in Cooks day.

Surprisingly enough theres only 25 people living in boro with jobs today....

It explains the wierd accent you get. 1000s of oirish (doyles) moved there in a very shot period.

People south of tees tend to have a n yorkshire accent.

People north have a wierd scouserish accent thats neither really yorkshire or co durham.

The coal ships were basically a scaled up coble with a flatter bottom.

They used to sail them onto the beaches or rocks.

There are still tracks in the lias below ravenscar where they dug out cart guides to truck the barrels of piss to the alum mine.

Ships would ho down with coal from newcastle then return with the piss, dropping it off at the alum mines.

And somd poor sods inc. an ancestor went to aus in it. Eurgh.
