The Zuniga Map, 1608

The Zuniga Map is the most important map of the early years of the Jamestown colony. It was found in the Spanish archives, in the files of the Spanish spy network. It is probably a tracing of a map drawn by John Smith. Above, the whole map; below close-up views of Jamestown and Powhatan's capital of Werowomoco. You can explore the map in detail here.
