18th century pirate remains found:

At least, the remains were found near the wreck of the Whydah, off of Cape Cod, and are likely to be one of her crew. The article mentions a hope that it's Sam Bellamy himself, though I imagine that's a long shot - but I found it a fascinating find in any case!

You're welcome, Covert. I thought it was fascinating, too! I'll be following this story as it develops.
