The Pirate Wars of 1718

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Historical Context I liked that this course provided historical context for the age of piracy. For example, what caused it, where they operated, when, and the results. So this course was much more than just "tall tales" about pirates The lecturer was quite good but he appeared to be reading. (one of the best is Dorsey Armstrong... does she actually use a teleprompter? I'm sure she does but you wouldn't know it.)

1: The Pirate Wars of 1718

Go beyond the pop-cultural portrayal of pirates and get to know the true buccaneers, bandits, and brigands who looted, burned, warred, killed, and caused mayhem for decades, while at the same time turning society as we knew it at that time upside down. Dig into the true history of the infamous Blackbeard, follow the adventures of lesser-known Richard Worley and Stede Bonnet, and discover the lasting impact the golden age of piracy had on the world at large.
