(UNITED STATES COAST GUARD/CNN) - Archaeologists have recovered five more cannons from Blackbeard's ship off the coast of North Carolina.
The booty was unearthed some 300 years after the infamous "Queen Anne's Revenge" sank in the waters of Beauport inlet.
Each of the guns once fired six-pound cannonballs.
Edward Teach - better known as "Blackbeard" - was the notorious pirate who terrorized the Atlantic in the 18th century.
