  • 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.

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.

When people play this game they get to experience the character as they would in the books, but this time in the real world.
