425 year old map offers new clues to the disappearance of the lost Roanoke colony - thanks KVT!
The Roanoke Colony on Roanoke Island in present-day North Carolina was a late 16th-century attempt to establish a permanent English settlement in what later became the Virginia Colony. The final group of colonists disappeared during the Anglo-Spanish War, three years after the last shipment of supplies from England. The settlement is known as "The Lost Colony," and the fate of the colonists has never been determined.
