The real history of pirates

hoopla digital

Streaming video - 2021

Other than scale, what is the difference between a pirate and the vast armies of an emperor? Were the men who famously traversed the Atlantic actually heroic explorers--or were they...pirates? In The Real History of Pirates, you'll look at world history from a new point of view, realizing much of what you've learned before should be viewed through a more accurate, post-imperialistic filter.
