We had planned to spend the best of 2020 researching the National Archives and British Library. Clearly that’s no longer possible for the time being.

Fortunately we have access to a large collection of books and papers that we have built over the last 20 years. While that doesn’t in any way replace the ability to access the treasure trove of documents available at Kew Gardens, we hope in time be able to establish connections with scholars and writers that have researched Henry Every and other protagonists of the Golden age of piracy to exchange ideas.
