Thomas Harriot, 1590AD, on Virginia (NC)

I am currently reading Thomas Harriot's 1590AD report on Virginia (modern North Carolina).  There is nothing like reading the old script, as I have with my hard copy reprinted by Dover Publishers, but this site at least has the text and illustrations.

This text and report is associated, of course, with the ill-fated Roanoke colony.  A rather early planting of the St. George's Cross in the New World!
