Ports, Piracy and Maritime War: Piracy in the English Channel and the Atlantic, c. 1280-c. 1330
In Ports, Piracy, and Maritime War Thomas K. Heebøll-Holm presents a study of maritime predation in English and French waters around the year 1300. Heebøll-Holm shows that piracy was often part of private wars between English, French, and Gascon ports and mariners, occupying a liminal space between crime and warfare.
