When children tour the Maritime Museum in Beaufort, NC, they often have a different perspective on the exhibits.
A favorite with many children is the Blackbeard’s Queen Anne Revenge exhibit and conservation lab. When the conservator said that the ship had sunk 300 years ago, one young boy had difficulty imagining how long ago that was.
“Is 300 more than 200?” he asked.
When the conservator confirmed that it was, the boy asked, “Did you know him?”
