Pirates, canoes, and science, oh my! Come out to the annual Queen Anne s Revenge Conservation Lab s Open House to experience ongoing archaeological conservation. Learn how conservators and archaeologists use chemistry, physics, technology, and more to recover and conserve artifacts through fun hands-on activities and educational demonstrations.
Encounter artifacts from Blackbeard’s flagship, Queen Anne’s Revenge, formerly the French slave-trading vessel La Concorde. Examine a 400-year-old dugout canoe from eastern NC and learn more about the science required to record and care for local history! Be an archaeological conservator for a day and discover how interdisciplinary, scientific research is bringing North Carolina History back to life at this free, educational event!
