Did X Ever Really Mark the Spot? Piracy in Popular Culture

January 19, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Perhaps none have had a greater influence on our collective imagination of pirates as Robert Louis Stevenson. The Muppets, Disney, N.C. Wyeth, and countless others have shaped popular ideas of piracy based on Stevenson’s Treasure Island. Walk the plank with Maine Maritime Museum’s Assistant Curator, Paul Fuller, for a fun and lighthearted peek at some popular piracy myths and an examination of the map of how we got here in the first place.
