Artifacts from the flagship of Blackbeard the pirate, the Queen Anne’s Revenge, have gone on display in the Duffy Gallery at Tryon Palace in New Bern. The exhibit, which runs through Feb. 15, includes cannon balls, a wine bottle and nautical tools, as well as multimedia displays explaining what life was like aboard the ship. The Queen Anne’s Revenge ran aground in North Carolina’s Beaufort Inlet in 1718.
