NEW BERN, N.C. (AP) — Artifacts from the flagship of Blackbeard the pirate will be on display at Tryon Palace in New Bern.

Artifacts from the Queen Anne's Revenge, including cannon balls, a wine bottle and nautical tools, are on display in the Duffy Gallery from Friday through Feb. 15.

The exhibit also includes multimedia displays explaining what life was like aboard the ship. It features Tryon Palace's royal portrait of Queen Anne, the ship's namesake.

The artifacts are on loan from the North Carolina Maritime Museum in Beaufort, the official repository for artifacts from the Queen Anne's Revenge shipwreck.

The Queen Anne's Revenge ran aground in Beaufort Inlet in 1718. The shipwreck was discovered in 1996.
