This collection piques the imagination with historical evidence about the actual exploits of pirates as revealed in the archaeological record of such ships as Blackbeard's Queen Anne's Revenge, recently discovered off Beaufort Inlet, North Carolina; the Speaker, which sailed in the Indian Ocean; and the Whydah, the first pirate ship discovered in North America (near the tip of Cape Cod). Examining excavated underwater ""treasure sites"" and terrestrial pirate lairs found off the coast of Madagascar, throughout the Caribbean, and within the United States, the authors explore the romanticized ""Golden Age of Piracy,"" a period brimming with the real-life exploits of Captain Kidd, Blackbeard, Henry Morgan, and the ""gentleman pirate"" Jean Lafitte.
