The Republic of Pirates at the Expedition Whydah Museum in Provincetown this coming Tuesday, July 21, from 4 to 6pm.
The museum was established by Barry Clifford, the explorer who found Sam Bellamy's flagship, the Whydah, and it houses many artifacts found at the wreck site in nearby Wellfleet. Ken Kinkor -- one of the world's most knowledgeable scholars of the Golden Age Pirates -- was the resident researcher there until his untimely death in 2013.
The museum is located on Macmillan Wharf; I'll be at the gift store, so you don't have to buy admission to come by and say hello.
My next pirates-related event is at the scene of the crime -- Nassau, The Bahamas -- in late October.
