The Baltimore Raid,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Stolen Village: Baltimore and the Barbary Pirates (Paperback)
This is a wonderfully fascinating subject.It is the best thing we have on the subject at the moment. There is a decided gap here for someone else to fill.There is a lack of books on this subject.
A few years ago a wreck was found off the coast of Devon at Salcombe. There was an amazing tv documentary on it. Due to where the cannon were found on the seabed historians concluded it was a galley. Proof it was an Algerine galley came in the form of around 400 gold coins issued at Sallee in North Africa. These coins are or were on display in the British Museum. I can't remember Des Ekin mentioning this wreck in his book or the gold coins. It is surely relevant.
