There is little to distinguish the pirate from the average sailor in the archaeological record. Virtually every pirate-related site yet excavated would not be identified as such without the accompanying historical record. The contributors to this volume combine both material culture and archival research to confirm the exploits of pirates and the ships they sailed.
The first comprehensive, entertaining look at the artifactual evidence of real pirates, recovered at both shipwrecks and known pirate bases. With 153 b&w illustrations, 20 tables.
