The Crew of the Scavenger is an authentic, living history pirate group based in Florida. Our main goal is to realistically portray a pirate crew from the "Golden Age of Piracy", between about 1710 and 1725, as they might have appeared while ashore in a town like Nassau or Port Royal. All of our clothing is as close to period correct as possible, from the designs, to the materials. The same goes for our weapons, be it swords, pistols, or boarding axes. If it wasn't around by 1720, our goal is that it won't be seen on us.

We attend pirate festivals around the state, host a private living history encampment for pirate reenactors on an island in the Gulf of Mexico, and take a yearly trip to meet up with other reenactors in Virginia and Maryland in places like Colonial Williamsburg and Historic Saint Mary's City.

Hot chocolate, circa 1723

Historic Royal Palaces
Happy Easter! 🥚 In the 18th century, chocolate was as popular at court as is it today. This recipe for a hot chocolate is from the Cook and Confectioner’s Dictionary by John Nott, 1723. Come along to Hampton Court Palace this Easter to make your own hot chocolate and hunt for the Lindt Gold Bunnies! bit.ly/LindtHamptonCourt
