HISTORY OVERVIEW - Part 4 - Queen's Anne's Revenge

This was the age of piracy - 1716-1720, when pirates like Blackbeard sailed the seas, often tucked into Cape Lookout bight and Beaufort Town - leaving their legacies and even artifacts for us to discover almost 300 years later.

The bronze bell reveals the letters IHS MARIA and the date 1709.
