Best pirate - level 1

15/07/2011 17:16

Henry Morgan (1635-1688) was the best pirate of the Caribbean. He was from Wales. This year people from Texas University found six cannons. These cannons are maybe Henry Morgan’s cannons! They found them in Panama. Here Henry Morgan and his ship went under water in 1671.

“Everybody learns about Henry Morgan at school. But we had nothing from him. These cannons are the first in the world,” says the archaeologist.

The story of Captain Morgan is full of blood. He terrorized Spanish colonies in the Caribbean. The biggest of his actions was when he finished the town of Panama. He went to prison. After two years he was free. English king Charles II. Stuart (1630-1685) made him a boss of Jamaica.
