Blackbeard’s Cannons: arrrr

BEAUFORT, North Carolina (AP) — Underwater archaeologists have found another cannon from the wreckage of what they believe was the flagship of the notorious pirate Blackbeard.

Historical records indicate Blackbeard had 40 guns on the French frigate he captured in 1717 and renamed Queen Anne’s Revenge. Since 1996, when the wreckage of the ship was discovered in Beaufort Inlet, divers have found 22 at the site.

“We’re pretty positive that we have cannon number 23,” said project archaeologist Chris Southerly.
