Pilfered Wrecks

A new tourism initiative to boost local revenues and get
more people diving has got some folks in North Carolina afraid that there will be
widespread looting of wreckage thought to be Blackbeard’s
Queen Anne’s Revenge.

The critics say that the site should be fully protected while archaeologists continue to study artifacts that could
provide irrefutable evidence the shipwreck is the Queen Anne’s Revenge. The dispute is over a North Carolina program
called ‘Dive Down’ that will  open the wreck site to more than 300 divers annually.

Tough question…I suppose I’d say protect the wreck and get those anthropologists there quickly.
