Summary
It was supposed to be the first permanent English settlement in the New World. It became one of the most enduring, tantalizing mysteries in American history. In 1587, a ship with 117 English men, women and children arrived in what is now the Outer Banks of North Carolina to start the first British colony in the New World. But they would enter history as one of the most tantalizing mysteries of early America. Three years after leaving the settlement, Governor John White returned from what was supposed to be a six month supply trip to find the colony gone. Nothing remained but five chests of books and papers buried in the sand and a post with the word "Croatoan" carved on it. White knew Croatoan as an Indian village, but problems with his ship forced him to return to England without seeing if the Roanoke colonists had ventured there. LOST COLONY OF ROANOKE explores the possible fate of the vanished settlement. Were they killed by disease, storms, or possibly even Spanish adventurers? Did they abandon the coast and settle in the mountains? Persistent rumors link a reclusive group known as the Melungeons to the lost colony. Did they mingle with the Native Americans? From far-fetched theories to an underwater archaeological expedition going on today, this is a fascinating look at one of the most enduring mysteries in American history
