Internal Reports

Queen Anne's Revenge has attracted a bevy of accomplished scholars over the years, many of whom have published work directly related to findings from the shipwreck. These provide a deeper understanding of life at sea during the early 18th century. Some studies are highly technical, focusing upon certain artifacts with purposes that are difficult to understand. Others interpret archaeological findings at the site to shed light on life in coastal North Carolina during the colonial period. Though electronic copies of these documents aren't available directly here, many can be purchased or viewed on scholarly article databases like JSTOR.
