In the golden age of exploration, when Spanish ships loaded with New World gold struggled across the seas to their homeland, one sight feared by all sailors was the dreaded "Jolly Roger" flag.
Under this threatening flag sailed the The Pirate Ships, swift, agile and dangerous. The Great Ships takes to the high seas alongside the pirates for a thrilling look at one of the most storied chapters in maritime history. Hear tales of legendary pirates like Sir Henry Morgan, whose band of buccaneers captured Panama in 1671! Details of the pirates' life is revealed through their own writings, and the stories of those who suffered at their hands. Get an up-close look at the ships that bore the pirates to glory or death through period art and computer reconstructions, and see incredible footage of recently discovered pirate and treasure ships in their watery graves.
Join the History Channel for a thrilling look at this fabled era, and the men and ships whose names have become legend.
This program recounts the reign and the swift, agile, and dangerous pirate ships that were the scourge of the high seas during the golden age of piracy in the late 17th and early 18 centuries.
The JOLLY ROGER, with its terrifying skull and crossbones ensign, struck fear in the hearts of sailors everywhere. The adventure and rebellion of the pirate life, as well as these colorful mend and their ships, have earned them a place in the popular imagination.
