Program Description

Event Details

For a brief period of time in the early 1700s, Blackbeard the Pirate terrorized the seas around the Bahamas, the Caribbean and the Carolina coast. Little is known of this infamous historical figure, including his real name, but his reputation as a brutal force on the high seas has long outlived him. In 1718 Blackbeard ran two of his vessels aground at near Beaufort Inlet, North Carolina, including the Queen Anne's Revenge. For nearly 300 years, this shipwreck has eluded searchers who have come here to find the long lost flagship of Blackbeard’s fleet. But recently, a wreck presumed to be that of the Queen Anne’s Revenge has been found and is currently being recovered by teams of researchers and archaeologists. Join Eco-Photo Explorers on an adventure to examine the legend of Blackbeard and to dive on the wreck of his most famous ship.  (Sponsored by the Library's Nautical Advisory Council)
