The 300th anniversary of the sinking of Blackbeard’s flagship is underway with a tour of artifacts recovered from the vessel, Queen Anne’s Revenge. The traveling QAR exhibit will be on display in the new Historic Bath Exhibit Hall (formerly the northwest wing of the old Bath High School) from Mar. 1 to May 31. The exhibit is free.
