I read somewhere that current American accent (not sure whether they were talking about a specific one (like, say, Boston) or just a generic "non-accented" American accent) sounds more like 16th-17th century English than current British accents do. I can't remember where I read that, let alone whether or not it was a reputable source, but it was interesting to consider the linguistic implications of the evolution of accents. :-)
