I don’t blame the natives for attacking the settlers. I also don’t think it’s bad that Europeans took the land. If you go to someone else’s land, expect an attack. If you can’t defend your land, expect it to get taken.

Maybe a hurricane? They wouldn’t have been prepared for such weather and would’ve been washed out to sea with how close they were to the shore. Not an original theory, but it’s a pretty good idea.

Okay guess what they most likely died at sea, or split up half to another island half to another colony are tried going back to England and failed. But I like hearing other people’s thoughts. And I’m not an expert.😁

Btw if you think about it when the english came to America the Native Americans didn’t like it but allowed it, now when immigrants want to come in to America we don’t like it and don’t allow them to come in, this land is not ours that is definitely not fair

So let me tell y'all something. I live not far from that area of NC. Went on a field trip to a history museum and it just so happened that they were celebrating native American culture and had invited natives in the area to set up whatever exhibits and shops they wanted in the museum to show their culture. Anyway, walked up to this one table with my teacher and I started talking to a elderly native man. Its was all friendly until my teacher asked the gentleman, " Do you guys know what happened to the Lost Colony? Can you tell us anything on that?" and the elderly man's smile shifted and he said , " We know what happened but we will not tell." Freaked me the crap out. My teacher and I just laughed nervously. "When I asked him if he was serious...he looked at me seriously and then went on to ignore me. It was weird. They definitely know what happened.

i don’t think the native’s would’ve built graves for colonists but at the same time won’t leave their bodies rot on their sacred land... so they probably burned the bodies.

"the bodies were never found" just because there was no mass grave doesn't mean they didn't find the bodies, it means they didn't consider any bodies they found to be part of the lost colony, they could have found the bodies and disregarded them as part of another colony or something

I think they triad to go to Croatian but sank in the raging waves. I also think that they might have tried to make their own boat and escape Roanoke due to starvation. They would also later sink due to a makeshift boat.

hearing the story i don’t really believe they just vanished, i believe they were probably taken off the island or left themselves. and plus this was so long ago at a time where there wasn’t really much documenting or ID’s so who knows if all those people disappeared or just went somewhere else

They went to Croatoan and left a carving SAYING they were going to Croatoan, and then John White didn't get another boat to either go to Croatoan himself or deliver any letters there... This sounds exactly like when I leave a note for my husband on the fridge, and he texts me to ask what I've already said. -_-
