Blackbeard’s anchor?!


Look at the size of that thing!

The Queen Anne’s Revenge Project, which has been been doing ongoing archaeological investigations of what very well may be Blackbeard’s famous ship, has just pulled up a massive anchor.  Pauline’s blog informed me of the news, and the news is all over the Net.  I still had to share.  There is a nice article from the local StarNews detailing the recovery.  Like all archaeology, this identification is to a certain degree hypothetical, but, nevertheless, the evidence that this is in fact the ship of the notorious Teach is accumulating.  And, by any measure, this is one Hell of an artifact.

  1. That is a beautiful piece of iron work. I agree with you, no matter what boat it came from!
