The map notes the eastern coastline of North America, from the Outer Banks of North Carolina to Cape Breton Island. It is a record of European knowledge of the region immediately prior to the English voyages of discovery and settlement in Virginia and New England and Champlain’s French expeditions to eastern Canada. The name Norumbega designated the unknown lands of northeastern America until John Smith explored the region and published his map of 1614 christening the territory New England.
