Queen Anne's Revenge: Investigating, Interpreting & Preserving The Remains of Blackbeard's Flagship

Back in 1996, Phil Masters and some of his archaeologically minded colleagues were conducting surveys for the remains of the pirate Blackbeard's famed ships, the Queen Anne's Revenge and Adventure. As it turns out, they found these ships, and after a period of intense secrecy, they announced their find to the world. Since that time, a team of researchers has been working to understand and interpret this underwater site, with the assistance of the North Carolina Department of Cultural Resources. Information on their work can be found on the site in sections that include "Archaeology", "Artifacts", "Conservation", and "Education". Visitors should start off in the "Archaeology" section, and here they can read through field investigation reports dating back to the fall of 1997 and also view a map of the archaeological site. The "Artifacts" section is a real pip, as visitors can click on sections like "sustenance", "medicinal", and "personal possessions" to view recovered artifacts. Moving on, the "Conservation" area contains reports dating back to 2002 which chronicle their work in the conservation laboratory from each year. Finally, visitors shouldn't miss clicking on the "Friends of Queen Anne's Revenge" to learn about becoming a member of their "crew".
