When you hear the word pirate, most people think of the modern day pirates, Captain Hook from Peter Pan, Jack Sparrow from The Pirates of the Caribbean. The stereotypical definition of pirates was men who sailed the sea saying arrrgh and wear eye patches. But they were a lot bigger than that. Pirate is a word from Greek and Latin piratia, and the root of peril prefers to a person who commits acts of piracy (Waldman). 

The first pirate activity that the world has knowledge of is back in the seventh century BC (Matthews 1). By the mid 13th century BCE pirates had become the dominant seafaring people of the Mediterranean, committing acts of piracy (Waldman). The Golden Age of Piracy was when pirate activity increased greatly. The Golden Age of Piracy dated 1660 to 1730 (Matthews 2). The act of piracy was a crime on the seas. For over 2,500 years pirates lurked along trading routes, ready to attack merchant ships (Lock 8). Some pirates were stealers, while others were famous for behaving unusually. The most famous were the ones whose names could strike fear into the hearts of all who heard the name (Mason 26). But during the 1800's was when Pirates were seen as monsters in human form (Mason 4). '
