Have We Found the Lost Colony of Roanoke Island?

It's a mystery that has intrigued Americans for centuries:
What happened to the lost colonists of North Carolina's Roanoke Island? The settlers, who arrived in 1587, disappeared in 1590, leaving behind only two clues: the words "Croatoan" carved into a fort's gatepost and "Cro" etched into a tree. -- National Geographic

Your Say

What a waste of electrons! They're only talking about maybe doing an exploration. Nothing has happened.

Relax ladies and gents. Archeologists and historians have been looking for that so-called "lost colony" since the thing disappeared. It would be easier to find the manger that Obama was born in and his first swaddling than to locate any reasonable evidence of Croak-a-Noke.
