Bermuda, a rich cultural history...

It is said that the first human discovery of Bermuda was by the Spanish explorer Juan de Bermudez in 1503, although there is very little known about this explorer. The real history of Bermuda dates back to 1609 when Admiral Sir George Somers, set sail with a fleet of nine ships from Plymouth on the flagship sea venture towards the new British colony, Jamestown of Virginia. When the ship was caught in a storm they found themselves wrecked off the coast of Bermuda. Finding it a very nice place to stay, the admiral built replacement ships and sailed off leaving several men to lay British claim to the island. Somers returned to the island later that year, but died shortly after, causing the British to rename the island “Somers Island” in his honour. Upon learning of the islands suitability for colonization the Virginia company claimed the islands for themselves. Unfortunately, the islands were not quite as abundant as they had first thought, and they had to rely on food imports from American colonies, which they paid for in salt.

The 70's in Bermuda were filled with riots and race antagonism which resulted in the removal of all de facto discrimination and began talks of independence from Britain. In the following decades, the independence movement became an important political issue, however in 1995 a referendum failed by a two-thirds majority.

In 1684 Bermuda became a British colony, and slavery was first introduced in 1616 for domestic duties or trades people, until its abolition in 1834. Although the island relied heavily on American colonies, the political links with Britain proved stronger during the American war of independence, when Bermuda remained loyal to the crown. In 1833, Princess Louise, daughter of Queen Victoria paid an extended visit to Bermuda, this visit is said to have been responsible for putting Bermuda on the tourist map. By the end of the century the island was well on the way to becoming a popular winter destination.

Due to its location, Bermuda played an important role in allied military and intelligence operations during world war two, and there were many bases built for the American army on the island. The British signed a 99-year lease handing over large areas to the US military. In 1963 the progressive labor party was formed and together with the United Bermuda party, they worked to produce the 1968 constitution, which provided full internal self-government, while leaving security, defence, and diplomatic affairs to the crown.

The 70’s in Bermuda saw riots, and race antagonism which resulted in the removal of all de-facto discrimination and began talks of independence from Britain. During the following decades, the independence movement became a hot political topic, however a 1995 referendum failed by a two-thirds majority.
