This episode of Unsolved Histories, hosted by Joe Foster, delves into one of America's oldest mysteries: the Lost Colony of Roanoke. In 1587, English settlers, led by Governor John White, aimed to establish the first permanent English colony in North America on Roanoke Island, off the coast of present-day North Carolina. However, after White returned from a supply trip from England, he found the colony deserted, with the word 'Croatoan' as the sole clue to their fate. The podcast explores various theories about the settlers' disappearance, including integration with the Croatoan tribe, Spanish attacks, disease, famine, or natural disasters, and internal conflicts. It also touches on recent archaeological efforts and the legends that have emerged around this historical enigma. The episode encourages listeners to explore the theories further and contemplate the enduring intrigue of the Roanoke settlers' disappearance.
