Abstract:
The Historic Bath Foundation opened an exhibit hall in a renovated section of the town’s old high school building. Bringing history to life were exhibits such as Blackbeard, featuring an historic interpreter for the pirate who had a house in Bath. Putting history on display were artifacts, such as Theodore DeBry illustrations from 1590; historic maps; and antique firearms. Preserving history was extended to maintaining much of the original architectural structure of the 1920s building while adding a library, gallery, gift shop, and town offices.

Abstract:
From the mystique built up around Blackbeard the past three centuries, the scant details that can be defined as truth have been coated with generous layers of fiction. Defining his life and death as more a series of questions than statements are speculations such as the location of his treasure and real name. Counted as closer to the truth by historical interpreters and members of the North Carolina Historical Society are Blackbeard’s ties with Bath and Colonial administrative officials. Contributing also to truth’s pursuit are the Blackbeard Jamboree. This festival includes activities such as seafaring and tavern songs and camps that reflect 17th and 18th-century maritime lifeways.

Understanding the true measure of the treasure, though, entailed viewing how such items, sunk in the briny deep for nearly three centuries, were conserved by the QAR Conservation Lab.
