Pirates’ Booty

The Queen Anne’s Revenge Project– let’s just start with saying how cool is that for a name? Someone asks what you are doing, Oh, I’m working on the Queen Anne’s Revenge Project. Instant cool.

And not only is the name cool, what they are doing is cool. They are recovering artifacts from one of Blackbeard’s ships, run aground off the coast ofNorth Carolina.

And if you have ever played Sid Meier’s Pirates, you’ll love this tidbit- historians believe that Blackbeard purposely scuttled the ship because he could not afford to fleet of four ships and over 400 pirate followers.
