Images of the New World

Students examine how visual and literary images played an important role in the English colonization of Virginia. They analyze the importance of Thomas Harriot's Report on the subsequent development of English colonial plans for Virginia. They look at the connection between Harriot's text and the images that John White and Theodor de Bry created. They see how John Smith's written and cartographic descriptions of Virginia shape the colony's development.
