Queen Anne's Revenge
This ship became famous after the release of Pirates of the Caribbean, a popular film series. At the time of its construction in 1710, the ship was named Concord and belonged to the British fleet.
This three-masted ship with a displacement of 300 tons, armed with 26 cannons, was captured by the pirate Edward Teach, better known as Blackbeard, in 1717. He improved the ship and renamed it Queen Anne's Revenge.
Together with the other ships of his flotilla, Teach robbed more than 40 vessels. However, in 1718, Queen Anne's Revenge ran aground off the coast of North Carolina, and then sank at Topsel Bay near Beaufort Inlet.
In April 2012, the ship was discovered by American archaeologists. At the moment, more than 30 guns and 250 thousand artifacts have been raised from the depths.
