Abstract:
For almost 300 years an 18th-century shipwreck has rested on the ocean floor just off North Carolina's coast. Whether investigations confirm it to be Blackbeard's flagship, the QUEEN ANNE'S REVENGE, or not, the wreck is a significant historical find discovered in 1996. Since then 16,000 artifacts have been brought up and sent to the QUEEN ANNE'S REVENGE Conservation Lab at East Carolina University. A few, including the ship's bell, have been properly cleaned, restored, and readied for display, though many others continue to soak in sodium carbonate-filled conservation tanks and will for years.

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.
