There are a lot of stories about the lost colony of Roanoke and how the colonists that lived there disappeared. Some say they starved to death and some say the indians might have come and attacked them. Personally I think that the colonists left due to their lack of resources. There is some evidence supporting my hypothesis but also there is a lot that contradicts it. The colony of Roanoke consisted about one hundred and seven people. The Roanoke colony also known as the lost colony was established on Roanoke island which today is now known as North Carolina. In 1585 the english colony of Roanoke was founded by Sir Walter Raleigh. In 1584 Sir Walter Raleigh had been granted a royal decree by Queen Elizabeth the first to colonize North America.
