Brit.Privateer posted a topic in Captain TwillI've written a new post for my blog about what life was like in New Providence. It's called "The Strongest Man Carries the Day," Life in New Providence, 1716-1717. http://csphistorical.com/2015/07/26/the-strongest-man-carries-the-day-life-in-new-providence-1716-1717/ Find out all kinds of interesting information about life in this pirate stronghold during it's peak years. Learn about the geography of the port, where the pirates came from, what structures they lived in, what women did in the settlement, and more. The beginning of the article includes a convenient click-to-jump-to table of contents.
I would like to know how a pirate town would look like in the Caribbean, of which buildings such a settlement would be composed, what architectural style would have been common? Why would? Because I am dreaming of layout, even planning a pirate town, because such a project would drive me to learn more about this topic. Maybe someday there will be a studying model of such a pirate town. I am comming from the Wilhelminic reenactment (the era around 1900) and there are tons of books, pictures and photographs, there are even still lots of buildings to find nowadays. But I was very unskilled in digging out pictures or drawings of such stuff from the Caribbean from around 1715. Every useful comment would be much apprechiated and every hint to good books etc. would be much thanked!
