The Golden Age of Pirates
The Golden Age of Piracy is a common designation given to usually one or more outbursts of piracy in the maritime history of the early modern period. In its broadest accepted definition, the Golden Age of Piracy spans the 1650s to the 1730s and covers three separate outbursts of piracy:
- The buccaneering period of approximately 1650 to 1680, characterized by Anglo-French seamen based on Jamaica and Tortuga attacking Spanish colonies and shipping in the Caribbean and eastern Pacific
- The Pirate Round of the 1690s, associated with long-distance voyages from the Americas to rob Muslim and East India Company targets in the Indian Ocean and Red Sea
- The post-Spanish Succession period extending from 1716 to 1726, when Anglo-American sailors and privateers, left unemployed by the end of the War of the Spanish Succession, turned en masse to piracy in the Caribbean, the North American eastern seaboard, the West African coast, and the Indian Ocean
Narrower definitions of the Golden Age sometimes exclude the first or second periods, but most include at least some portion of the third. The modern conception of pirates as depicted in popular culture is derived largely, although not always accurately, from the Golden Age of Piracy.

Jack's Pirate Hat
Our version of the now-famous hat worn by Johnny Depp as the quintessential rogue and rascal Captain Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean. Jack is the pirate that we all want to be. Dashing, devilish, witty and damn fine with a cutlass in hand. Unique tricorn with haphazardly rolled back side, presented in a rich brown finish. Made of high-quality hand crafted wool felt (rather than leather as in the movie) and treated with an oil/wax hybrid for weather resistance. This hat is a beauty! And anyone seeing it knows that the wearer is ... Captain Jack.
