THE LOST COLONY OF ROANOKE
Transcript of THE LOST COLONY OF ROANOKE
where did it take place?
Agust 1587 Roanoke island now known as
what is the mystery?
115 english settlers arrived at Roanoke island in 1587. The governor went back to England to gather more supplies, when he got to England there was a war between England and Spain. He didn't arrive back to Roanoke till 1590. He found no trace of the colony. There were a few clues like the word "croatoan" croatoan was the name of a tribe of natives south of the colony.
There are many explanations for the lost colony of Roanoke, such as, the colonists were killed or abducted by the Native Americans. Another possible chance is they tried to sail back to England and got lost at sea .
what is our theory ?
We think that the people from the colony split up then they went with other people. The people probably went to croaton first, or near that direction, because that was a clue that was left behind. There could have also been a disease that made them flee.
