Edward Teach, better known by his nickname Blackbeard, was a pirate who was killed in November of 1718, but whose treasure was never found. Did it sink to the bottom of the ocean with his ship? Is it buried it in a chest on an island off the coast of North Carolina? Or was there ever any hidden treasure at all?
With Molly Brandenburg & Richard Rossner
Have you ever spent hours looking for something you simply lost? How about a hundred years? How about looking for a missing airplane? Or a vanished civilization? Every other Monday, Gone searches for everything lost. From D. B. Cooper to the Holy Grail, the Etruscan language to early Russian cosmonauts; if it disappeared, we’re looking. After all, just because something is gone, doesn’t mean it can’t be found. Gone is a production of Cutler Media and part of the Parcast Network.
