News and Information for the Press -- Queen Anne's Revenge

The many treasures entrusted to the North Carolina Department of Natural and Cultural Resources are owned by the people of this state.

We are indebted to Intersal, Inc., and Mike Daniel for discovering Blackbeard’s shipwrecked flagship the Queen Anne’s Revenge -- one of our department’s most popular attractions -- off the North Carolina coast in 1996. We welcome and encourage media interest in this fascinating story that intrigues the citizens of this state and attracts visitors from around the world to North Carolina.

NCDNCR fully believes in and completely supports press access to this discovery and is thankful for the hundreds of stories written over the years on this subject and encourages members of the media to continue promoting North Carolina’s multi-faceted history through their work.
