In the summer of 2007, Barry Clifford and his divers brought up 25,000 pounds of artifacts from the Whydah: “more than ever before,” he says. To date the team has retrieved more than 200,000 objects, including the ship’s bell. Some of these items are included in a roving National Geographic exhibit called “Real Pirates,” currently at The Franklin Institute Science Museum in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (215-448-1200; fi.edu) through November 2.
