Following the collapse of their colonial structure, the British found themselves desperately in need of material. All eyes turned towards the vast swaths of land in the Caribbean, particularly on the coast of Central America, that was either uncolonized or loosely controlled by Spanish and Central American polities. The story of the seeking, colonizing, and exploiting of British Honduras and the Mosquito Coast is the focal point of this map. Without the owning of these colonies, Britain may not have expanded into the Indian Subcontinent, Malaysia, Australia, and even China (Hong Kong) and established a global empire.
