Summary
In 1787, Britain banished its unwanted citizens uneducated petty thieves, streetwalkers, orphan chimneysweeps and dashing highwaymen to the fringes of the known world. So remote was Botany Bay the destination to which the overcrowded, disease-ridden convict ships were bound - that only one European expedition had ever before anchored there. Yet the rejects of Britain, accompanied only by a flimsy complement of soldiers, marines and officers, were expected to start a settlement and flourish.
