For the first time short video excerpts of the artifacts recovery can be viewed on Nautilus' YouTube channel. The complete videos of the recoveries are available for license as part of Nautilus Productions nearly two decade long digital record of archaeological efforts on the Queen Anne's Revenge.

The infamous pirate Blackbeard ran his flagship, the Queen Anne's Revenge, aground just outside Beaufort Inlet, N.C. in June of 1718. He was later killed in a fierce battle near Ocracoke N.C. in November of 1718. Since the 1996 discovery of the wreck by Intersal, Inc. The Nautilus Productions staff has been the official video crew for the study and recovery of the infamous pirate Blackbeard's ship the Queen Anne's Revenge (La Concorde).
