The true story of the pirates [French video]

“Popular figures in literature and cinema, pirates scoured the seas in the 17th and 18th centuries. In the wake of two excavation campaigns directed by the archaeologist Jean Soulat, Stéphane Bégoin leads us on their trail in Mauritius and Madagascar. He also attempts to discover, on land, information on what the daily life of the buccaneer’s crew was like when they were not at sea.” ARTE
