Anyone Want to Hear a Scary Story
My husband and I went to dinner with some of our best friends recently when one of them casually mentioned Roanoke. That’s right, you read that correctly. She casually metioned Roanoke.
Have you ever heard of the Lost Colony of Roanoke? Good because I hadn’t either. To be clear neither had anyone in the restaurant because we asked. So she proceeds to explain how they were the first settlers from England, and that one day they just disappeared. No one knows what happened to them. There was not a trace of the 90 men, 17 women, and 11 children, nor was there any sign of a struggle or battle. The only evidence they found was the word “Croatoan” carved on a board and the letters C-R-O carved on a tree.
Naturally I left this night not believing this story about some lost colony. Surely had there been a lost colony I would have known. Then yesterday while I was reading some news, THIS article came up in my feed.
I jumped into a serious rabbit hole on this one and Here is a short video explaining what went down “allegedly” at Roanoke.
