The Kingdom of Scotland's Darien scheme was the result of an inspired idea to found a colony on the Isthmus of Panama. Back in the late 17th century, this would have allowed goods from the Pacific to be quickly traded across the Atlantic (and vice versa), and it seemed a fortune was there for the taking. Regrettably the adventure was beset by disease, shortage of supplies, the unremitting hardships of the jungle, and the Spanish! After all, they were trying to build a trading hub right in...
