The truth about the sinking of the Queen Anne’s Revenge, flagship of the infamous pirate Blackbeard.

Off the coast of North Carolina, a group of marine archaeologists has discovered the remains of the Queen Anne's Revenge , the pirate Blackbeard's flagship. Their careful preservation and analysis of the remains - including cannons, guns, anchors, even gold - are helping to solve the biggest mystery about the infamous pirate's reign: Was the ship's sinking an accident or was the grounding a carefully laid plot by Blackbeard to double-cross his men and steal the treasure for himself? Three hundred years later, SECRETS OF THE DEAD Blackbeard’s Lost Ship airing Wednesday, June 22 on 8 p.m. on WXXI-TV (DT21.1/cable 11/cable 1011), reveals the true story.
