26<p id="idp283648">In 1584, Queen Elizabeth I charged Sir Walter Raleigh to discover and colonize lands in
27        the New World on behalf of England. This article discusses the efforts and expeditions
28        organized under Raleigh's patronage to found a colony in the current-day North Carolina.
29        Going beyond the chronological history of the doomed Roanoke colony, the author provides
30        insights into relations between the colonists and their native counterparts, discusses the
31        botanical riches of the region, and argues that Raleigh's efforts did not end in failure, as
32        commonly might be thought.</p>

64      England to Hispaniola and the Canary Islands; from there, the captains were instructed to
65      scout the lands northeast of those already claimed by Spain, to wit, Florida. This land — now
66      encompassing the Carolinas and Virginia — was claimed on behalf of England and named
67        <q>Virginia,</q> in honor of the <q>Virgin Queen.</q></p>
68<p id="idp273064">Information processing, especially text markup, was primitive in the colony. For example,
69      most text stores were in XML! Documents may have looked like this:

96<p id="idp221744">With land claimed in the New World, an expedition was mounted to establish a settlement.
97      The first expedition failed. Led by Sir Richard Grenville in April 1585, it encompassed 600
98      men of which 105 remained in the colony while Grenville returned to England for additional
99      provisions. (<span class="ital">See</span>

102          Durant, David N., Raleigh’s Lost Colony, Appendix I, Atheneum,
103            NY: 1981.)
104    ">Appendix A</a>.) However, when almost a year passed without Grenville’s return, the
105      remainder of the expeditionary force took advantage of Sir Francis Drake’s arrival to seek
106      return passage to England. <sup class="fn-label"><a href="#mul74" class="footnoteref" id="mul74-ref">[1]</a></sup>
107    </p>
108<p id="idp277352">The second expedition, organized by John White in 1587, fared better. It sailed with seven
109      ships filled with Devon families intent upon establishing a colony in that part of Virginia
110      called Roanoke, a word deriving from the speech of native peoples. [<a class="xref" href="#mul88" title="The Roanoke Colony, 1587 This Appendix contains an actual list of the individuals who sailed to the Roanoke

115      Two years after founding the <q>Cittie of Raleigh,</q> houses had been built for
116      almost all families residing in the colony, and the colony had celebrated the birth of its
117      first children born in the New World. The first child, grandchild of John White and child of
118      Ananias and Eleanor Dare, was been named Virginia in honor of the sovereign.</p>

120<h3 class="title" style="clear: both">Native Plants and Wildlife</h3>
121<p id="idp279016">The European settlers found the New World abundant with commodities <q>known to
122          yield victual and sustenance of man’s life</q>. The first expeditionary force noted
123        that a great variety of berries grew wildly, including raspberries, blueberries, and
124        strawberries. Along with maize, native grain, which could be made into bread, grew in the
125        area. Two other plants — more properly called roots — which could be saved for winter
126        consumption were <q>cassida</q> and <q>chyna.</q> The settlers discovered
127        that while some roots could be eaten much in appearance as they were dug, others had to be
128        boiled before use as a foodstuff. As more fully described below, other plants included
129        beans, and several crops previously unknown to the Europeans: <div class="itemizedlist" id="idp421712"><ul>

138<div class="section" id="idp424432">
139<h4 class="title" style="clear: both">Gourds</h4>
140<p id="idp424752">The native people grew a variety of large broad-leafed, ground-covering vines which
141          produced what they called <q>macocqwer</q> or gourds. (<span class="ital">See</span>
142          <a class="xref" href="#gourds" title="Gourds">Figure 1</a>.) Varying in color among shades of green, yellow, and orange,
143          these gourds served a number of functions, not chief of which was as a food source. There
144          were two distinct types, soft-shelled and hard-shelled. Of particular interest to the
145          settlers were pumpkins; grown throughout the summer, this gourd remained in the fields
146          until late autumn’s frost. Following harvest, the gourd could be stored throughout the
147          winter and its flesh made into stews.</p>

152<div class="caption"><p id="idp428408">While gourds, pumpkins and squashes were new to the English, they were soon
153              discovered to be very useful for warding off starvation.</p></div>
156<p id="idp428880">However, far more important was the hard-skinned gourd. The value of this gourd lay
157          not in its potential as a food source, but rather as a container and serving vessel. Once
158          dried, these gourds were cut and hollowed for use as storage containers, as well as for
159          bowls, ladles, cups, and other types of serving utensils. Indeed, since gourds grew in a
160          variety of shapes and sizes, particular gourds could be selected for their resemblance to
161          the items sought. For the adventurous, the durable objects could be carved and decorated
162          with plant dyes.</p>
164<div class="section" id="idp429752">
165<h4 class="title" style="clear: both">Tomatoes</h4>
166<p id="idp430072">Also new to the colonists was the tomato. (<span class="ital">See</span>
167          <a class="xref" href="#Tomatoes" title="Tomatoes">Figure 2</a>.) Tomatoes were described as thin-skinned succulent fruits with
168          pulpy interiors. Almost <q>Bristol red</q> in color, the fruit was somewhat round
169          in form and the size of a chicken’s egg — not anything approaching the size of modern,
170          cultivated varieties. Of particular importance was the plant’s fecundity. The flowering,
171          bush-like plant bore fruit over a period of months. Thus, a plant could produce as many as
172          15 tomatoes at a given time.</p>

182<h4 class="title" style="clear: both">Potatoes</h4>
183<p id="idp434104">Another root that proved beneficial was the potato. Similarly, to the
184            <q>cassida</q> mentioned earlier, potatoes were considered roots rather than
185          plants, as the edible portion of the plant lay underground. Given the curious nature of
186          this legume, several examples were brought back from the New World. In fact, Raleigh
187          attempted to cultivate the potato at his estate, Youghall, in Ireland.</p>
189<div class="section" id="idp434984">
190<h4 class="title" style="clear: both">Fruits and Nuts</h4>
191<p id="idp435304">The colony abounded with a wealth of fruits and nuts, some not previously known to the
192          Europeans. In addition to mulberries, strawberries, and blueberries already mentioned, one
193          of the more curious fruits found was called <q>medlar</q> by the natives. Medlar
194          was a fruit not unlike cherries in size and color, but with a much sweeter taste. An
195          equally unusual fruit was <q>metaqvesvnnaqvk</q>; notwithstanding its red fruit,
196          that plant’s more important feature lay in the cochinile insects which fed upon its
197          prickly thick leaves <sup class="fn-label"><a href="#mul90" class="footnoteref" id="mul90-ref">[2]</a></sup>.</p>
198<p id="idp437256">Equally abundant in variety and size were nuts. In addition to chestnuts and walnuts,
199          the natives <q>harvested</q> no less than five types of <q>acorns</q>.
200          These somewhat small nuts were either dried in a manner similar to that used in England
201          for malt, or were boiled for broth.</p>
