Queen Anne’s Re­venge

The Herald-Sun (Sunday) - - Infocus -

The pi­rate Ed­ward Teach, known as Black­beard, and his ship, the Queen Anne’s Re­venge, are part of the lore of colo­nial North Car­olina, and this ship­wreck just off the North Car­olina coast is be­lieved to be Black­beard’s flag­ship. This 18- by 24-inch full-color poster is an artist’s ren­di­tion of a French ship of the same class as the Queen Anne’s Re­venge, with mod­i­fi­ca­tions likely made for use as a slave ship and later pi­rate ship. It also il­lus­trates some of the sci­en­tific find­ings made in 2001, when it was drawn.
