This blog is about everything concerning real pirates: their lives, deeds and fates. It concentrates mainly on historical piracy, with special reference to the contrast between the reality and the modern stereotype of the pirate, currently epitomised, perhaps, by the Disney Pirates of the Caribbean movie series.

Please bear these considerations in mind when posting comments and replies. For example: discussions about the authenticity of Jack Sparrow’s costume are welcome; speculation about the character’s back story are not.
