With Edward Van der Porten
Come spend a late afternoon engaged in an exciting historical presentation on the life and times of Sir Francis Drake. Edward Von der Porten has completed his sixty-three year search for information about Sir Francis Drake’s Nova Albion, which identified Drake’s Cove in the Point Reyes National Seashore as the site of his harbor and encampment. That was the place where Drake made the first English claim to land that would become part of the United States of America. Research into ship construction, seamanship, navigation, cartography, botany, zoology, hydrology, meteorology, anthropology and archeology by a wide range of scholars contribute to the story. Analysis of Ming porcelain shards found in coast Miwok Native-American village sites provides physical clues which complete the evidence for the site and for Drake’s activities there. Also open to youth (age 15-17) with parent attendance.
