Blackbeard's Ship Discovered?

Archaeologists have discovered a shipwreck off the coast of North Carolina thought to be the ship of legendary pirate Blackbeard.

The ship ran aground in 1718, and some researchers believe it was a French slave ship Blackbeard captured in 1717 and renamed Queen Anne's Revenge.

Several officials said historical data and coral-covered artifacts recovered from the site -- including 25 cannons, which experts said was an uncommonly large number to find on a ship in the region in the early 18th century -- remove any doubt the wreckage belonged to Blackbeard.

Did they found the remains of Blackbeard?

I would buy them if I could so I could brag about having Blackbeard burried in my backyard.
