The story of the Pandora is the tragic, but little known, sequel to the infamous Mutiny on the Bounty. Sent to the South Pacific to recapture the Bounty mutineers, the Pandora sank on 29 August 1791 on the Great Barrier Reef. Thirty-one crew and four mutineers perished. For almost 200 year, the Pandora lay undisturbed until her discovery in 1977. Author Peter Gesner recounts the ship's last voyage and details her subsequent excavation by Queensland Museum archaeologists. 60 pages. View more info
