Set sail during the Golden Age of Piracy to learn about the reality of pirates! Participants will be introduced to the stereotypical concepts of pirates and discuss where images of hooks, peg legs and eye patches originated. By examining such pirates as Edward Teach, otherwise known as Blackbeard, Captain Kidd and Calico Jack, participants will learn about the lives of real pirates. Female pirates Mary Read and Anne Bonny are also introduced along with many of the popular weapons used by these “rogues of the seas.”
