North Carolina Lost Colony : Researchers hopeful that NC site is that of Lost Colony

North Carolina’s Lost Colony May Have Been Found? A new clue and findings at recent archeological digs in North Carolina have led researchers to believe that they may be closer to solving a mystery that is more than 400 years old.

In 2012, researchers with the First Colony Foundation and the British Museum announced they had found a tantalizing clue about the fate of the Lost Colony, the settlers who disappeared from Roanoke Island in the late 16th century.

That clue on a map led foundation researchers back to a site where they had previously found artifacts years ago. More recent digs found more artifacts that appear to be of the correct time period.
