Being British, I find this

Being British, I find this story fascinating. The very best of luck to all those involved in this exiting project. I'm not aware of the current position in any great detail, but I am certain this story will gain momentum as it progresses. I would imagine the 'Queen Anne's Revenge' was constructed of oak. If so, and depending how well she was preserved, there could be an awful amount to bring to the surface. Perhaps similarly, King Henry VIIIs flagship, the 'Mary Rose', was constructed of oak, and sank in 1545. She was well-preserved by the compacted clay, so if the 'Revenge'sank in 1720s or 30s, maybe she too will be will be in equally good a condition, along with many artifacts. Here's to it anyway. Hope she brings your 'Wilmington' those much-needed tourists and revenue!
