Mardi Gras Shipwreck Expedition Videos Re-released
These re-mastered project videos commemorate the publication of the Society for Historical Archaeology’s Journal, Historical Archaeology Mardi Gras Shipwreck Thematic Issue and the 10 year anniversary of the expedition. A mysterious sinking, a group of dedicated scientists and technicians and a 200 year old shipwreck have all collided in the Gulf of Mexico. Four thousand feet below the choppy seas the remains of a 19th century shipwreck lie in wait and a month long expedition was mounted to uncover her secrets. At the time, this was the deepest underwater archaeological project ever attempted in the Gulf of Mexico. Videos here – Mardi Gras Expedition Videos

Rick Allen of Nautilus Productions videotapes underwater archaeologist Richard Lawrence uncovering a cannon ball from Blackbeard the Pirate's flagship, the Queen Anne's Revenge.

On this day, June 10th of 1718, Blackbeard the Pirate ran his flagship, the Queen Anne’s Revenge, aground near Beaufort Inlet, NC. This may be the first case of corporate downsizing in the new world. Watch Video – Blackbeard’s Queen Anne’s Revenge Shipwreck Project. The Queen Anne’s Revenge grounded on a sandbar, cracking her main-mast and severely damaging many of her timbers.

Blackbeard’s Crew Hanged!
On this day of March 12, 1719 fourteen of Queen Anne’s Revenge – BlackbeardGibbett crew members were executed. Two escaped the gallows. One proved that he had participated in the bloody fight with Virginia troops out of necessity and was only a guest at a drinking party on Teach’s ship and not a pirate. The other, Israel Hands, was not present at the fight. He claimed that during a drinking session Teach had shot him in the knee, and that he was still covered by the royal pardon. The remaining 14 pirates were hanged and left to rot in gibbets along Williamsburg’s Capitol Landing Road. Read More!
