CNN: Blackbeard the pirate's terror tactics uncovered

"From his long, black hair to his Tricorn hat, braided beard and bandolier packing six pistols, Blackbeard the pirate was certainly inventive with his image.

He was also, according to new findings at what is believed to be the wreck of his ship, "Queen Anne's Revenge," inventive with his weaponry.

Munitions discovered at the wreck site, just off the coast of North Carolina near the inlet of Beaufort, include typical pieces of ordnance such as cannons, cutlasses and blunderbusses. But recent finds include two-headed cannon balls and lethal packages of shrapnel."
