    MOREHEAD CITY, N.C. – An anchor from what's believed to be the wreck of the pirate Blackbeard's flagship has been raised from the ocean floor off the North Carolina coast.

    Archaeologists believe the anchor recovered Friday is from the Queen Anne's Revenge, which sank in 1718. That was five months before Blackbeard was killed in a battle.

    The artifact is the third-largest item at the shipwreck, outsized only by two other anchors.

    Researchers retrieved the anchor from the shipwreck about 20 feet under water and were bringing it to shore. The work to retrieve it began last week. The anchor is about 11 feet long.

    The recovery coincides with the release this month of "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides." The movie features both Blackbeard and the Queen Anne's Revenge.[/p]

    LOL! I just watched Pirates 4 like 16 hours ago, I come here at GBAtemp and what do I see? Blackbeards Anchor recovered, at first I thought "Maybe they lost the ships anchor during the shooting of Pirates 4 and found it now" but didn't expect it to be related to the ACTUAL Blackbeards ship. Which is kinda moving if you ask me.

    Sell it in an Auction to those money spending hogs.

    Wait, Blackbeard actually existed? I thought that was just a myth, a fairytale about pirates?

    Blackbeard - Edward Teach
    yep, he was a real pirate.
    Watching one Piece made me think Whitebeard(Edward Newgate) was also real lol.

    Well, I heard about the queen Anne's revenge as a kid and that his(blackbeards) name is Edward Teach.

    Later when I watched One Piece, i was confused lol. They made Whitebeard and Blackbeard with changed names. Whitebeard - Edward Newgate and named Blackbeard - Marshal D. Teach

    I'm surprised it was only 20 feet under.
