As long as valuable cargo has been shipped across bodies of water, pirates have existed. The first documented pirates are the Sea Peoples, who plundered on the Mediterranean in the 13th century B.C. Although pirates have existed all over the world the most romanticised version are the pirates who did their worst in the Caribbean from the late 1500s until the mid 1700s. People are still entranced by the pirate mystique as has been seen by the blockbuster success of Disney's Pirates Of The Caribbean
film series. We love the clothes, the adventure and the pirate dialect has even inspired an annual International Speak Like A Pirate day.
