Darien - A word that sends a shiver down the collective spine.

A tale of financial misadventure and human loss on an epic scale. But what is less well known is the impact it had on another Scottish maritime career choice - piracy.

Dr Eric Graham weaves a story of Scotland’s buccaneers.

Part of the programme of events being arranged by "Previously" - Scotland's History Festival.
