I can’t think of a more fun way to learn history than attending reenactments, and this one is PIRATE themed! What is a pirate? Are they real or just stories? How did someone become a pirate? Was there really a “code”? There’s so much to learn!
You could read “Treasure Island” by Robert Louis Stevenson. The History Channel has a page called “8 Real-Life Pirates Who Roved the High Seas”. Do a search online for “pirate history” and you’ll find all kinds of links! Search for “pirate historical fiction” and you’ll find all kinds of great books! And then there’s always this Pirate Fair!

The 3rd Annual High Desert Pirate Renaissance Faire returns, now in an all-new, beautiful location! Fun for all ages from the smallest powder monkey to the oldest sea captain! This year we have an expanded kids zone, an expanded food court, and a 21+ adult island with booze and bawdy entertainment!
Sword fights, cannon fire, improv actors, stage shows, pirate encampments, merchants from all over the globe and much much more. Tickets will be available online as we get closer to the show, at www.hdpiratefaire.com
