The modern-day town of Port Royal, Jamaica, bears little evidence of its spectacular past. In Port Royal Jamaica, Pawson and Buisseret detail the establishment of the town of Port Royal in the second half of the seventeenth century, in the heyday of privateering. The town was critical to the successful colonization of Jamaica by the British and pivotal to British mercantile activity, but is best known for the activities of its swashbuckling pirates.
