Another cannon recovered from the Queen Anne's Revenge  (kuddos to NCDCR for keeping this project alive during tough economic times). This season marks a new collaboration between the ECU Maritime Studies Program and NCDCR with several students becoming involved in excavation and conservation of the QAR (following in the footsteps of LK Schnitzer, ECU Maritime Studies Student, who has been an intern on the QAR project since August 2010). Nice commentary and guiding of the cannon, Josh Marano! Students also found artifacts during dredging (way to go Laurel Seaborn and Rob Minford!).
