the History of Pirates

Post  Jordan Wahba on Thu May 02, 2013 1:39 pm

Piracy and pirates have been part of the world for thousands of years. Even during the days of the Egyptian pharaohs, there were instances of ships on the water that attacked other vessels. The word pirate actually comes from a Latin word, periato, which means a "sea bandit".The very first known definition for the act of pirates was created by an ancient Greek historian. that historian described it as an attack on a ship or a town that was done for the purpose of earning money. Now pirates are all over hollywood movies and even in legends at heroes would defeat the pirates. study
