    Thumbs up Blackbeard's anchor recovered off NC coast

    MOREHEAD CITY, N.C. An anchor from what's believed to be the wreck of the pirate Blackbeard's flagship has been raised from the ocean floor off the North Carolina coast.


    Archaeologists believe the anchor recovered Friday is from the Queen Anne's Revenge, which sank in 1718. That was five months before Blackbeard was killed in a battle.


    The recovery coincides with the release this month of "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides." The movie features both Blackbeard and the Queen Anne's Revenge.

    Thanks for this DK. I have always been fascinated by shipwrecks and anything recovered from them. Hey, maybe this was Blackbeard's way of a shout-out for being mentioned in the movie!
