I am one who believes that Virginia’s English History began in present day North Carolina at Roanoke Island, not at Jamestown further north. Borders came later. But to be fair, Jamestown was the first permanent, successful English settlement in the New World. Yet before Jamestown’s permanence, another colony was attempted – Fort Raleigh on Roanoke Island. In anticipation of the History Channel’s program Roanoke: The Search for the Lost Colony, which airs tonight, October 26,2015, I wanted to share a few pictures from a history trip I took in July, 2015.
For those interested in learning more about the Lost Colony, or perhaps wanting to visit, please, click on the links below. Once, I have my podcasting setup in place, I will briefly discuss events surrounding the Lost Colony, as well as the predominant mystery theories and archaeology being done to answer those theories.
