Pirates are inextricably linked with our maritime history. They have been feared opponents on the seas since the time of Julius Caesar. Even nowadays they are still a threat to shipping, and today's pirates are particularly violent. A very different picture of pirates is often painted in Hollywood movies, in books and on TV: the pirate as an action hero. Captain Hook, Long John Silver and Jack Sparrow are evocative images. The 'Real Pirates' exhibition plunges the visitor into the world of piracy, where young and old alike can discover that there is still a great deal to learn about genuine pirates.
