Blackbeard's Treasure On The Trail of Blackbeard KG and Ringy are on the trail of pirate nectar, hunting for buried treasure from the most notorious pirate in history: Blackbeard. Pirate Payoff This is the toughest hunt of their careers, but the payoff could make them legends. What Plunders Be Under In the early 1700s, Blackbeard terrorized the Atlantic coast, stealing and plundering goods and treasure with his 40-cannon ship and vicious crew. Hidden Treasure on the Tar River Known as the most notorious pirate ever to sail the high seas, he was killed and beheaded in 1718, leaving behind legends of treasure buried up and down the banks of North Carolina. Scattered Remains of History The guys have leads on three locations along the Tar River, where Blackbeard spent his final year. At Table Top Tree They've heard a story about the Table Top Tree, where Blackbeard was said to have climbed up to watch for ships up and down the river. The ultimate goal would be to find any treasure he could have buried at the base of the tree. Hints of History The legend and artifacts of Blackbeard are such a mystery that any Blackbeard artifacts like guns, daggers, or a sword would be the find of a lifetime. The Sun Also Sets Before Blackbeard was killed, it's rumored that he planned to end his pirating days and become a plantation gentleman. On their hunt for Blackbeard's Treasure, KG and Ringy visit an old plantation upriver that dates back to the 1700s. Blackbeard and Beyond The only problem is, the place is so huge, there's no telling exactly where he would have been. That means that KG and Ringy will have to search not only the plantation house, but the cotton fields and surrounding woods as well. The good news is, on a plantation this old, they could find some seriously old artifacts or even cologne.
