Historical Thursday - Ancient Piracy

Our recent game of Civilization (1980) prompted some discussion on piracy in the ancient world.  I shared some facts I recalled from my lessons but thought I would glance about the web and find a few links with worthwhile information.  First, over on graecomuse.wordpress.com, have a look at "Piracy in the Ancient Mediterranean" here.


Also, on cindyvallar.com, on Cindy Vallar's Pirates and Privateers: The History of Maritime Piracy, she has a whole section on "Ancient Piracy" here.


Finally, on piratesinfo.com, check out Krzysztof Wilczynski's article on "Roman Piracy" here.
