Sea Gives Up 300 Year Old Blackbeard Artifacts

Blackbeard's anchor recovered off NC coast


MOREHEAD CITY, N.C. – An anchor from what's believed to be the wreck of the pirate Blackbeard's flagship has been raised from the ocean floor off the North Carolina coast.
Archaeologists believe the anchor recovered Friday is from the Queen Anne's Revenge, which sank in 1718. That was five months before Blackbeard was killed in a battle.
The recovery coincides with the release this month of "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides."
The movie features both Blackbeard and the Queen Anne's Revenge.
