Anchor of Blackbeard's Ship Found

An expedition off the North Carolina coast recovered the anchor from the wreckage of pirate Blackbeard's ship, Queen Anne's Revenge:

The Queen Anne's Revenge is believed to have run aground in the shallow waters off Beaufort in 1718. The ship was discovered in 1996, with piecemeal recovery of artifacts intensifying only a few years ago. [...]

The expedition is trying to score a trove of 18th-century goods, which will be used to educate the public and raise awareness of underwater preservation efforts. The site has already yielded more than 250,000 artifacts, including cannons, gold, platters, glass, beads, shackles and rope, according to the state.

Why, just in time to mark the opening of the summer blockbuster Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. How do they time this stuff? Link
