Antique maps, long-lost letters, buried treasure, and a town that disappeared -- the tale of Andrew Turnbull and his Smyrnea plantation sounds a lot like an adventure novel, but it's all true. In 1777, the people who had made the largest mass migration to found a British colony in North America abandoned their town forever. Now, new evidence dug up by archaeologists in New Smyrna Beach and Edgewater, Florida combined with the discovery of previously-unknown 18th century documents in Dundee,Scotland have inspired a fresh look at this fascinating chapter of America's colonial past. Film maker George Sibley combines location filming, scholarly interviews and extensive re-enactments of the lost colony in a half-hour film which was shown on PBS and is featured in a local museum. The DVD also includes lots of bonus material about Turnbull's place in history, the Minorcans in Florida and more.
