The Quest to Recover an English Pirate Ship and Its Lost Treasure

Captain "Black Sam" Bellamy and his band of pirates terrorised the high seas, looting gold from more than fifty ships and loading it onto the 'Whydah', a captured slave ship, before losing one last furious battle with the elements and sinking off the coast of Cape Cod in the Great Storm of 1717. Two centuries later, spellbound by his uncle's tales of Bellamy, the English-sailor-turned-pirate-adventurer, and his flagship the 'Whydah' - 'The Black Ship' - underwater explorer Barry Clifford resolved to salvage the sunken wreck and its plunder.

Clifford and his team of divers have recovered the wreck and much of its priceless treasure - canons, pistols, coinage and gold - some of which dates back to 1684. 'The Black Ship' tells how Barry Clifford correctly estimated the position of the wreckage and over the years discovered over one hundred thousand artefacts of real historical value. This is a book of adventure, history and marine archaeology, and a dramatic quest that unfolds within the context of the Golden Age of piracy and the legend of a pirate from south-west England.
