Roanoke Mystery

The Roanoke Colony was founded in 1585, but mysteriously disappeared. Supply ships should have come with food, but Britain was busy fighting a war and they didn't arrive until three years later. What they did find was a skeleton and a log with one word carved onto its surface: Croatoan. The word's meaning is unknown, and how the colony disappeared without a trace remains a mystery. Some say they built a ship to sail home and it crashed; others say they merged with a friendly native american tribe and their blood lives on to this day. It may remain a mystery forever.
