Raising Blackbeard

— NPR's Adam Hochberg reports on an archeological expedition that's been examining a sunken ship off the coast of North Carolina which may be the wreckage of `Queen Anne's Revenge,' the vessel used by the notorious pirate, Blackbeard, during the early 1700's. The project could serve as a model for future joint ventures between private explorers and state governments.
