Jessica Rieman's curator insight, February 11, 10:54 AM

Pirates were real in this specific time period. But lets just say they were no the type we think of today that Blockbusters glorify. These types of pirates would have beeen working to discover treasures from the Tierra Firme trade line. The point of origin for the South American 'Tierra Firme' Treasure Fleets, ran from Portobelo (Panama) to the Orinoco Delta.

Jess Deady's curator insight, April 17, 7:27 AM

This is a fun exercise than can be used in many classrooms. I like being able to scroll through and zoom into what maps what I want to look at. Also, children love pirates (or most of them anyway) and this would be a great map to bring into their worlds.
