Archaeologists excavate two sites where Roanoke Lost Colony settlers may have gone


The New World must have seemed so mysterious and alien to the 115 English colonists who settled Roanoke Island off the coast of North Carolina in 1587. They came from a heavily developed country to a wilderness without European-type houses, bridges, paved roads, inns, taverns or cultivated fields. There were no government officials collecting taxes, no nobility demanding obedience and tribute, no churches in which to worship the Creator of this New World and the much different Old World they’d left behind. There was wilderness everywhere, as far as one could see or walk.
