Book The Lost Colony of Roanoke

Download or read book The Lost Colony of Roanoke written by Brandon Fullam and published by McFarland. This book was released on 2017-03-21 with total page 268 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt:  When Governor John White sailed for England from Roanoke Island in August 1587, he left behind more than 100 men, women and children. They were never seen again by Europeans. For more than four centuries the fate of the Roanoke colony has remained a mystery, despite the many attempts to construct a satisfactory, convincing explanation. New research suggests that all past and present theories are based upon a series of erroneous assumptions that have persisted for centuries. Through a close examination of the early accounts, previously unknown or unexamined documents, and native Algonquian oral tradition, this book deconstructs the traditional theories. What emerges is a fresh narrative of the ultimate fate of the Lost Colony.

Book excerpt: On November 8, 1937, a tourist from California named L. E. Hammond walked onto the campus of Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, carrying a 21-pound rock he had accidentally stumbled upon in North Carolina. The barely-legible inscription on the rock appeared to be a lengthy message from Eleanor Dare, mother of Virginia Dare, and it was dated 1591. The inscription told of the trials and tribulations endured by the English colonists after their departure from Roanoke Island in 1587. The authenticity of that stone, commonly referred to as the Chowan River Dare Stone, has remained an open question since its appearance in 1937. Carefully researched and documented, this book finally provides conclusive evidence that the Chowan River Dare Stone is a clever 20th century fraud. In doing so, the book also tells the fascinating story of the Dare Stone and exposes the orchestration of the hoax and its shadowy perpetrators.

Book Richard Grenville and the Lost Colony of Roanoke

Download or read book Richard Grenville and the Lost Colony of Roanoke written by Andy Gabriel-Powell and published by McFarland. This book was released on 2016-10-24 with total page 192 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: England’s ill-fated first attempt to colonize America at Roanoke Island in 1587, more than 30 years before the Pilgrims set sail, has been the focus of numerous studies, fictional retellings and media interpretations. By 1590 the Lost Colony had disappeared and much of the available literature on it is based on research conducted more than 60 years ago. Drawing on newly discovered documents, several recent archaeological finds and a re-examination of contemporary writings, this book brings a fresh perspective to the story. The author discusses the 2012 discovery of a “hidden” fort on Virginia Governor John White’s 1585 map and challenges accepted theories about the Dare Stones. Biographies of White and Sir Richard Grenville—Sir Walter Raleigh’s cousin and a more involved participant in the venture than previously credited—are included, along with previously unpublished images.

Book Science Fact and Science Fiction

Download or read book Science Fact and Science Fiction written by Brian Stableford and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2006-09-06 with total page 576 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Science fiction is a literary genre based on scientific speculation. Works of science fiction use the ideas and the vocabulary of all sciences to create valid narratives that explore the future effects of science on events and human beings. Science Fact and Science Fiction examines in one volume how science has propelled science-fiction and, to a lesser extent, how science fiction has influenced the sciences. Although coverage will discuss the science behind the fiction from the Classical Age to the present, focus is naturally on the 19th century to the present, when the Industrial Revolution and spectacular progress in science and technology triggered an influx of science-fiction works speculating on the future. As scientific developments alter expectations for the future, the literature absorbs, uses, and adapts such contextual visions. The goal of the Encyclopedia is not to present a catalog of sciences and their application in literary fiction, but rather to study the ongoing flow and counterflow of influences, including how fictional representations of science affect how we view its practice and disciplines. Although the main focus is on literature, other forms of science fiction, including film and video games, are explored and, because science is an international matter, works from non-English speaking countries are discussed as needed.
