"Blackbeard's Queen Anne's Revenge: 1718" features artifacts that represent weaponry, nautical tools and personal items. The artifacts are on loan from the N.C. Maritime Museum in Beaufort, the official repository for artifacts from the Queen Anne's Revenge shipwreck. The QAR ran aground near Beaufort in 1718. This wreck was located in November 1996. Items range from what one would expect on a pirate ship, such as cannonballs, lead shot, gun flint, spikes and grinding stones. Other items retrieved from the shipwreck, however, represent normal life in the 19th century, such as dinner plates, a pipe stem and bowl, thumb screws and cask hoops.
