Abstract:
Resting in twenty-two feet of water about a mile off the coast from Beaufort, the Queen Anne's Revenge, the flagship of the pirate Blackbeard, has lain quietly for almost three centuries. Since its discovery in 1996, the wreck has interested many, including scientists, historians, and under- water archaeologists. For example, John T. Wells, director of the Institute of Marine Sciences, hopes to reconstruct the surrounding environment at the time of the sinking.

Abstract:
David Moore began his search for Blackbeard's ship, the QUEEN ANNE'S REVENGE, in 1982, when he was a graduate student in East Carolina University's Maritime Studies program. Years as a history detective and Blackbeard researcher paid off in 1996 when the ship was located near the site he predicted the wreck lay. Moore used old charts and records in London, Virginia, and North and South Carolina in his search, but it was a document found in ECU's Joyner Library that was the key piece. Moore is curator of nautical archaeology at the North Carolina Maritime Museum in Beaufort.

Abstract:
Wreckage discovered in 1996 was initially thought to be remains of the Queen Anne's Revenge. Further study by professional archaeologists in October 1997 has further substantiated this claim with discovery of fourteen large cannons thus far. Further fieldwork was planned to provide additional evidence that these remains in fact represent Blackbeard's ship lost in 1718.
