Confirmed: Blackbeard's Queen Anne's Revenge sank in North Carolina!

Washington, Sun, 04 Sep 2011 ANI

Washington, Sept 4 (ANI): A ship that sank in 1718 off the coast of North Carolina and discovered almost 15 years ago has been confirmed as the flagship of the infamous 18th-century English pirate Blackbeard.

 

So far, the North Carolina Department of Cultural Resources emphasized that the wreck, which was discovered in 1995, was 'thought to be' the Queen Anne's Revenge.

 

Now, the officials have revealed that a comprehensive review of the evidence suggests that it is indeed the ship sailed by Blackbeard - one of history's fiercest and most colorful pirates.

 

"There was not one aha moment," National Geographic News quoted Claire Aubel, public relations coordinator for the North Carolina Maritime Museums, as saying.

 

"There was a collection of moments and a deduction based on the evidence," she said.

 

Aubel added that there were two main reasons for the team's certainty - the sheer size of the wreck and the many weapons that were found in the rubble.

 

It is believed that the ship ran aground on a sandbankat Beaufort Inlet, Carteret County, N.C. He and his crew abandoned the ship to survive. (ANI)
