On Monday, the Department of Cultural Resources Underwater Archeology team performed their last dive of the season to recover artifacts from Blackbeard's flagship the Queen Anne's Revenge, and it was a huge success.  Five cannons and two large concretions were brought up from the bottom of the ocean floor, making it the largest one day recover of cannons so far.  Public Radio East's Mac McKee spoke with Director of the State Office of Underwater Archeology Steve Claggett about the dive.
