Regarding fishing, that's a rather salty diet. Their problem was fresh water ~ not fish; but game was in short supply; the Indians had moved upstream for fresh water and were a long way away from Jamestwn.
Little went on in the East Coast area until about 1620 ~ and then settlers came to many places, indians attacked, etc. Europe prepared to plunge into the 30 years war ~ just all sorts of stuff.
Thanks for the info.
I wonder if it was related to solar activity. Do these episodes correlate with sun-spots?
I’m not sure about the dates, but its generally believed that the first English settlers arrived just after the native population had drastically declined. I always understood that this was due to disease, but it seems the drought might have been a factor.
