The Land of Norumbega was the earliest name of a region that we now recognize as New England. Its center was the Penobscot River of Maine, and around it grew the legend of a fabulous city, like El Dorado, that drew adventurers and explorers from Europe and brought them in contact with the native peoples who had lived in the Norumbega region for millennia.
