Willoughbyland

by Matthew Parker | 10 March 2016
Category: General History
Synopsis
At the beginning of the 1650s, England was in ruins - wrecked, impoverished, grief-stricken by plague and civil war. Yet shimmering on the horizon was an intoxicating possibility, a vision of paradise: Willoughbyland. Ambitious and free-thinking adventurers poured in, attracted by the toleration, the optimism, the rich soil and the promise of the gold of El Dorado. It was England's most hopeful colony. But the Restoration saw the end of political freedom, and brought in its place spies, war, rebellion and treachery. The advent of racial slavery poisoned everything. What started out as a heaven was soon to become one of the cruellest places on earth. The history of Willoughbyland is a microcosm of empire, its heady attractions and fatal dangers.
