Pirate Collection

Pirates are buccaneers or seafarers who operate on the world’s oceans and attack ships in order to seize booty. Historically, pirates were generally associated with criminal activities such as robbery, plundering and kidnapping. Piracy peaked during the so-called “golden years of piracy” in the late 17th and early 18th centuries, particularly in the Caribbean.

Pirates were known to hoist flags with Jolly Roger (skull and cross bones) to signal their hostile intentions. They used various tactics such as boarding ships, pillaging coastal towns and extortion to achieve their goals. It is important to note that the portrayal of pirates is often influenced by romanticised notions in popular culture that glorify some of the dangerous and criminal aspects of piracy. While pirates are less present today, modern forms of piracy can still occur in some parts of the world, particularly in waters off Somalia and in the Gulf of Guinea.
