The island of Bermuda is acolony of what nation?

Asked by Wiki User

Bermuda was settled by the Kingdom of England (which, it should be noted, included Wales as a principality) in 1609 (officially in 1612). When that merged with the Kingdom of Scotland in 1707 to create the Kingdom of Great Britain, Bermuda became British. When Ireland was officially incorporated within the union in 1800, creating the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, it remained British. In 1927, following most of Ireland becoming the Irish Free State, and before its becoming completely independent in 1937, The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland became the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Bermuda remained British.

Today Bermuda remains an overseas territory (ie. colony) of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. It should be noted that its law is based on English law, and its real attachment is with England. If the SNP follow through successfully with its promise to take Scotland into independence, Scotland will not take a share of Bermuda, which would revert, presumably, to being an English colony...even if the rump state is referred to as the United Kingdom of England and Northern Ireland.

How was the Bermuda island formed?

Asked by Wiki User

The Bermuda islands were formed by volcanic activity millions of years ago. The islands are actually the exposed peaks of a submerged volcanic mountain range that formed on the seafloor. Over time, coral reefs built up around these peaks and eventually formed the islands we see today.

Does Bermuda have any famous fast food joints like any in America?

Asked by Wiki User

There's a Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) in the main city of Hamilton. There used to be a McDonald's at a U.S. airbase, but when the base closed in 1995 so too did the restaurant; there have been attempts to open new McDonald's, but these resulted in fast food franchises (other than that one KFC) being outlawed in 1997.

Is Bermuda in North or South America?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Bermuda is not in the Americas at all. Look at a topographical map of the ocean floor. The Americas and the Old World have been (and continue to be) driven apart by a line of volcanism stretching North to South on the floor of the Atlantic. This same process created the Atlantic Ocean, and continues to widen it. The volcanic material that wells up solidifies, creating an ever widening ocean floor...the materiel has welled up at varying rates. When it has welled up too quickly, it has not simply created a flat floor, but has built up mountains. The mid-Atlantic ridge is the sub-oceanic mountain ridge that currently stretches down the length of the fissure. The important detail is that all parts of the Oceanic plate under the Atlantic floor were formed at that fissure, and this includes the seamount that forms Bermuda....a very long time ago, when the Atlantic was far narrower, Bermuda was the mid-Atlantic ridge. There are a number of other oceanic islands in the Atlantic formed by the same process, and these are the only other landmasses that Bermuda can truthfully be described as composing a common geographical unit with.

Cartographers, civil servants and the generally ignorant, however, find it easier to group by proximity, or by the imagined cultural or racial commonality of separate populations.

Consequently, Bermuda, settled politically as an extension of Virginia, and nearest to Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, is typically described as being part of North America.

At other times it is described as being part of the Caribbean or the West Indies. The latter term covers a larger area than the Caribbean, allowing the inclusion of the Gulf of Mexico and islands like the Bahamas and the Turks and Caicos. Bermuda, a thousand miles from the Caribbean, and nearer to Halifax, Nova Scotia than to Miami, Florida, is obviously not part of either geographic area. As it is an island with a Spanish name, in the vague area of the New World, and is often presumed by non-Bermudians to have an overwhelmingly African racial makeup and culture (as is also assumed for the West Indies), and to have identical climate, society, and culture to the West Indies (none of which is true), it is often erroneously grouped with the West Indies. As some organisations prefer to group the West Indies with Central America, Bermuda can be found listed as part of Central America.

The islands stretching down the East side of the Caribbean were once hilltops on an isthmus that joined North and South America, before vulcanism created the current isthmus of Central America. For a geological time period, the two continents were isolated, with no land bridge. The shallow sea between, the Caribbean, Gulf of Mexico, and the near shore Atlantic, are all over the continental shelf. That is to say that the islands of the Caribbean/West Indies, unlike Bermuda, are part of the same continental landmass as the Americas, and are not oceanic islands formed by the same processes as Bermuda.

What is Bermuda most known for?

The Bermuda rig, Bermuda sloops, stormy weather, and Bermuda onions, most obviously.

Bermuda grass is actually from the Mediterranean. Bermuda shorts were introduced to Bermuda by the army. Gosling Brothers' Bermuda Black Seal rum is a blend of rums imported from the West Indies (rum has never been made in Bermuda, but Boston, Massachusetts used to be the leading producer of the spirit). There is no such thing as the Bermuda Triangle, a nonsense invented in recent decades by foreigners.
