Overview and Background

August 18, 1590, was the year when John White and his men arrived on Roanoke Island to find it to be abandoned with no trace of permanent settlers. The only clues found were a skeleton belonging to one of the English garrisons, and a nearby tree with the words "CROATOAN" carved into it. It is believed that they became lost at sea traveling to Croatoan Island, thus giving them the famed name: The Lost Colony.
