United States of America

Part of the The Statesman’s Yearbook book series (SYBK)


The earliest inhabitants of the north American continent can be traced back to Palaeolithic times but it was not until the twelfth century that permanent settlements were created, particularly in the east where rich opportunities for cultivation and fishing supported major fortified towns. The first Europeans to make their presence felt were Spaniards who based themselves in Florida before venturing north and west. Santa Fe in New Mexico was founded in 1610. But by the mid-sixteenth century there was competition from the French centred on Quebec who colonized along the St Lawrence River.
