History And Fiction Coincide

Just as "Pirates of the Caribbean - On Stranger Tides" was released last week, and featuring Blackbeard and the ship Queen Anne's Revenge, along comes news that an anchor believed to be from that particular ship has been recovered.

An anchor from what's believed to be the wreck of the pirate Blackbeard's flagship has been raised from the ocean floor off the North Carolina coast.

Archaeologists believe the anchor recovered Friday is from the Queen Anne's Revenge, which sank in 1718. That was five months before Blackbeard was killed in a battle.

So, did they recover any chalice? :)
