  • Pirates Galleons And Treasure Analysis

    When watching “Pirates, Galleons, and Treasure: Globe Trekker”, one certainly does learn something about pirates and their history. However, that does not mean the documentary is particularly useful. In fact, the documentary while mostly accurate still has some small discrepancies and does not provide enough detail for it to be helpful to those actually studying pirates. The documentary is a fun resource for those who want basic facts, but leaves some facts to assumptions and seems to gloss over some information. It tends to focuses on myths and interesting stories that may have been true rather than the truth. More attention is also put on cities rather pirates and when it does focus on the pirates, it is not done well. It tends to highlight the successes of the pirates and shows a bias towards making them seem more tough and dangerous than they were. All in all, it is difficult to believe that this documentary would be useful in the academic world, especially when looking at how they illustrate certain pirates and their lives. While the documentary does talk about numerous pirates, they only go in depth for a handful. That handful includes Sir Francis Drake, Captain Henry Morgan, Calico Jack Rackham, Anne Bonny, Mary Read, and Blackbeard “Edward Teach”.

To begin with, Sir Drake is described as Queen Elizabeth’s “favourite privateer” and “her own legal…
