Pirates and Privateers of Cornwall

Join us for an evening’s exciting talk with maritime historian Dr Helen Doe.  Piracy has a long Cornish tradition and so does privateering. What was the difference between the two and did the Cornish know the difference? The answer can be found in this talk that describes some of the Cornishmen who had highly successful careers in attacking merchant ships of other countries and carrying off their cargoes, plus the support they had from the local communities.  Booking Essential.
