Event description

Description

Plunder, marooning and pieces-of-eight? Sounds like something out of Treasure Island. However, this little-known story from the so-called 'golden age' of piracy is true. Dr Ian Friel explores what happened to a pirate crew as they went through four captains and three ships - each named Resolution - in a voyage from the Caribbean and Americas to Africa and back. He also shows how, for some, the voyage ended in London's fearsome Marshalsea Prison.
