What happened to the Lost Colony? There are many different theories and opinions on what really happened to the lost colony of Roanoke.

The English colonists on Roanoke Island lived in homes near native villages, but after vanishing without a trace, they are now called the Lost Colony. When John White finally returned to Roanoke Island in 1590, the English colony had vanished, and he allegedly found the words 'CRO ' and 'CROATOAN ' carved on two trees. When White saw that, he thought that the colonists got help from the Croatan Indians on Hatteras Island. The Croatans were peaceful and friendly with the settlers, so the English could have a good relationship with them when the colony was established in 1587.

Imagine an explorer going back to his colony and no one was there, no sign of the colonists. This is what explorer John White went through with his colony of Roanoke. Roanoke is still one of the most unknown disappearances of people in the world. The Roanoke colony disappeared because the Croatan tribe had the colonist assimilated with the tribe’s culture. Roanoke has many reasons for its disappearance by the amount of time John White was gone for, the carving of Croatoan on a tree, and the major drought that hit the colonists.
Sir Walter Raleigh explored from England and started his own colony called Roanoke. He voyaged to Roanoke twice. The first time was in 1584 and the second one was in 1585. Both times he was there, Raleigh abandoned the land. Sir Walter Raleigh headed back to England to fight against the Spanish and that’s when he needed someone to help him with the colony in Roanoke. During that time in war, Raleigh had John White be the governor to take over the colony while Raleigh was doing other work in England. All of a sudden the colony has seemed to have disappeared and no one knows what really happened.

James Horn’s, “A Land As God Made It”, tells about the hardships and tragedies the settlers faced as they attempted to make a settlement in Jamestown. Before attempting to settle at Jamestown, England tried to permanently settle in Roanoke, off the coast of North Carolina. The colony was “unsuitable because its shallow waters could not accommodate ocean-going vessels” (Horn 2005, 31). Horn says that the failure of the Roanoke colony occurred for many different reasons; one of the main reasons being that it was not a time for success for the colony. Although the colony failed, it gave impact on the future for settlers to start a new settlement (Horn 2005, 33).
Why did so many colonists die? In May 1607, so many people from England landed in Jamestown, Virginia. Three english ships came around the Chesapeake bay in the hope of finding land and riches. The first english settlement was invested, by England’s strong and rich investors.
Jamestown was repeating cycle of death, it started May 14th, 1607 when colonists set sail from England to Anchor in Chesapeake Bay. The Colonists came to Jamestown in search of possible riches and to convert natives to Christianity. however, within the first 6 months 70 of the 110 original colonists had died, due to water supply/drought, bad planning, and relations with the natives. Further water supply and Jamestown wasn't very good leader leading to major droughts.
