    [imgleft]http://lh6.ggpht.com/_cQOyQjTP3GY/SzdzZcJpthI/AAAAAAAAAIU/lTv6nE8qBxo/pa-logo.gif[/imgleft]In late September, Barry Clifford will be off to an island off the east coast of Madagascar to do what he does best, explore sunken pirate ships! Clifford is headed to the small island of ÃŽle Sainte-Marie This is the first major expedition that I know of to search for pirate history in the area. It makes sense as these were some of the most pirate infested waters of the Golden Age!

    Barry Clifford made a name for himself in 1984 by discovering the first authentic pirate shipwreck ever found, The Whydah! If you haven't read up on the Whydah, it is really quite fascinating, this single wreck has done more to give a picture of what real pirate life was like than almost any other source. You can read more about it HERE! This time Clifford will be looking to explore 5 sunken ships he first discovered in 1999, and he also has plans to explore some underwater tunnels in the area. This time, he will be looking for artifacts of the pirate Olivier Le Vasseur, known as "The Buzzard." I can't wait to see just what this expedition uncovers, it should be fascinating to say the least!
