Blackbeard

It looks like archaeologists have confirmed that a ship wreck of the coast of North Carolina is Blackbeard's ship The Queen Anne's Revenge. Or have they? I have the link below to the NatGeo article. The end of the article is kind of odd. It makes it sound like they are confirming the find after 15 years because it will unlock private funding to explore the site further. The evidence seems pretty conclusive to me anyway. I want to believe.

Enjoy.
