Welcome to Boar's Head: Marauders of the Waterways! This year, the theme is going to be based on a large group of people that typically get ignored in our studies of history and what has gone before us.
Many may ask why these people, their deeds and their voyages & destinations are so important. While violence was very typical with these groups, it was not always the end resolution. Marauders have been using the various waterways of the world since ancient times. They have gone by many names and they still exist to this very day. During the heyday, the most famous time period of the most infamous of these peoples was the 17th and 18th centuries. That group of people is known as "pirates".
Pirates, while important to history overall, are past our period of study. HOWEVER, there were many Marauders of the Waterways, dating back to ancient marauders like the Greeks, who used the Lipari Island as their base for over 2,500 years. So, needless to say, there are many peoples who were Marauders during our period that we will concentrate on during this year's Boar's Head. So come and join us in the fun, and maybe find some treasure for yourself!
