What do maps made by early British explorers and settlers tell us about early colonial settlements in America?
Make at least two claims about early colonial settlements in America.
Maps made by early British explorers and settlers trace the indigenous understanding of America developed between the 16th century and 18th century. They convey the information about the continent's physical features, practical details ranging from the contours of rivers and coastlines to the locations of settlements.
Also, the maps are important in the process of transforming America into a new world populated by American Indians, Africans, and Europeans.
