History and use
In 1790 HMS Pandora sailed from England in pursuit of the HMS Bounty and its mutineers. The Pandora was wrecked in 1791 on its return voyage while attempting to negotiate the Great Barrier Reef, Australia.
Queensland Museum archaeological expeditions between 1983 and 1999 recovered many artefacts. These copper sheathing pieces were recovered from a concretion in the stern excavations.
