Blackbeard’s anchor raised near Beaufort, now at QAR lab

(June 3, 2011)   —   After resting at the bottom of Beaufort Inlet for almost 300 years, one of four large anchors of Blackbeard’s flagship Queen Anne’s Revenge hit the warm Carolina sun again May 27. The anchor’s raising was met with cheers from the crew that has worked for the past nine years to carefully bring the wreckage of Queen Anne’s Revenge to the surface, piece by piece.
