Some settlements are famous for their terrible collapses, ie Roanoke. And others that did survive one wonders how, ie Jamestown with its newly discovered evidence of cannibalism. But some that didn’t make it have been kinda forgotten, ie the French South Carolina colony at Charlesfort. Who knew? Discovery News has a list of Failed Colonial settlements. But They missed a couple of which I will now mention: the Spanish in South Carolina at Santa Elena and the Scots in Darien, now Panama which lead to the bankrupting of the Scottish economy and the formation of Great Britain. Who knew? (shrug).
