When divers discovered the wreck of Blackbeard’s Queen Anne’s Revenge off the coast of NC’s Fort Macon in 1991, Linda Carnes-McNaughton went to work. She will discuss those archaeological discoveries at the meeting. Along with Mark Wilde-Ramsing, she has recently published a book, “Blackbeard’s Sunken Prize: The 300-Year Voyage of the Queen Anne’s Revenge.” She will sell and sign copies of the beautifully illustrated book for $20 each by cash or check. Linda is program archaeologist and curator at Fort Bragg’s Cultural Resources Management Program.
Linda worked for many years as an archaeologist at the Historic Sites Section, Division of Archives and History, Department of Cultural Resources. In that capacity, she conducted excavations throughout the state and helped develop public programs. She grew up in Atlanta, Georgia, received her undergraduate degree in Anthropology from Georgia State University, and received a doctorate in Anthropology at UNC Chapel Hill.
