This royal throne of kings, this sceptred isle, This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars, This other Eden, demi-paradise, This fortress built by Nature for herself Against infection and the hand of war, This happy breed of men, this little world, This precious stone set in the silver sea, Which serves it in the office of a wall Or as a moat defensive to a house, Against the envy of less happier lands,-- This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England. ~~William Shakespeare, Richard III

Englishmen in America in the 1400s?

Michelle Moran, the History Buff, had this article posted on her blog and I found it really fascinating. Thought I would pass it along in case anyone else would be interested. :) I love it when stuff like this is found...really makes me wish I had gone into archeology or somehow majored in British history. Can you imagine being the first person to touch something like this in over 500 years???? Clink the link below to go to the full article.

Letter from Henry VII
