The answer to this question might well be: wherever man first traveled by sea! The first nation in the world to have a navy was Phoenicia, and there were pirates attacking her! ships. The early Greeks practiced piracy on a large scale, and the [booty they captured used to be sold openly in the marketplace. Later on, when Athens became a naval power, she was able to make travel in the Aegean safe. But when she became less powerful, piracy sprang up again. During Roman times, the Mediterranean Sea was infested with pirates. Some of them became so strong and rich that they set up foritfied towns and strongholds along the coast. When Julius Caesar was a young man he was captured by such pirates and held for ransom in 78 B.C. But the Roman Empire did manage to provide protection for shipping in the Mediterranean for about 250 years. During the Middle Ages, the Barbary corsairs of North Africa began to attack shipping and raid the shorelines. of Europe. Since they were Muslim, there was a religious hatred against Christians combined with their piracy. During the Crusades, these pirates sold many Chris tian pilgrims into captivity. In northern Europe, the Vikings were great explorers. But they combined raiding with their explorations during the 8th, 9th, and 10 centuries. And in the Far East, there were various kinds of pirates or sea rovers from the earliest times. Why did men become pirates? There were many reasons of course. Some took to piracy because they were already outlaws, and this seemed an easy way to make money. There was also less chance of capture, and a kind of freer life. Some men became pirates because they were no longer needed as seamen when wars ended. In some cases, it was just a matter of hard times and they couldn't find work. Today piracy is practically- extinct. But many people are still looking for buried pirate treasure. Actually, there is very little evidence that such buried treasure exists. The pirates usually divided their booty and spent it quickly. FUN TIME The Riddle Box 1. Why is a thief called a jailbird? 2. When is a wall like a fish? 3.
