Storyboard Text

  • Back in the 1607 British wanted to make its own colony. They wanted to establish it in what today is known as Pennsylvania. They went there too to get more money and gold. There were only rich and gentlemen people who went on the boat. Basically people who did not know how to start a colony.(Information from TCI books).
  • This colony was meant to make the rich even richer. The plan was to make this new colony to get gold and take it back to Britain. When people heard this only the rich and Gentlemen went because they were the only one with the money to pay and go.
  • When it came to eating the men were the ones who had to cook because there were no women . They had to stay and take care of the children. This meant there was no one to take care of the men if they got sick.
  • They thought that it would be a good idea to get there waste and throw it into the river. They thought by doing this that the river would take the waste and push it out to the ocean. It ended up staying there for many months and every time they took a drink from that water they were actually drinking there waste.
  • When they finally noticed that they were drinking there waste they later ran out of food. This later lead to many people getting sick and dying. When he people died they eat there body and it lead to cannibalism. Many people went crazy and started to kill the men.
  • What ever people were left return to Britain. They asked what happened to the colony and they told everything that happened. For Britain this was a great fail and never spoke about it to the other men and women back at Britain.(Information from TCi book)
