The Foundation of WCC’s Arts and Humanities Lecture

Moffatt Auditorium | March 04, 2024 5:30 pm

Terry Williams’s presentation titled “The Queen Anne’s Revenge – A Look at a 300-Year-Old Underwater Archaeological Wonder” will briefly discuss the La Concorde/Queen Anne’s Revenge ship and her Captain, the notorious Blackbeard, as well as the eventual recovery and conservation of her artifacts. This presentation will not be available on livestream or recorded online.

Williams attended the University of Georgia, and upon graduation, she entered the United States Air Force, serving as an administration and then aircraft maintenance officer. On retirement, she attended the conservation program at City and Guilds of London Art School. As an object’s conservator, Williams worked in various museums and sites in London, Virginia, and Boston. She returned to her home in Goldsboro, N.C. Initially taking advantage of an opportunity to volunteer with the Queen Anne’s Revenge Conservation Lab, Williams has been part of the team since 2010. In this capacity, she treats objects from an underwater archaeological environment in preparation for museum use.

This Kirk Keller Memorial Lecture is free and open to the public to attend.
