What happened to the colony of Roanoke? No one is sure what ever happened to the 113 colonists. There have beenmany theories proposed trying to explain what happened for example, the people of Roanoke simply left the settlement, the people of Roanoke decided to leave Roanoke Island to live with the Natives, or the colonists were killed by the Native Americans. These are the most popular theories as to what happened on Roanoke Island.
The people of Roanoke simply left the settlement. This is one of the more probable theories. It is said that they have supposedly left Roanoke Island and started settling in the Chesapeake Bay area. The evidence in this tale is that the ruler of the natives did indeed admit to killing the colonists. They said that they had been in their land and were then killed to prevent more settlers from stealing their land.
The people of Roanoke decided to leave Roanoke Island to live with the Natives. This theory is definitely probable. Croatoan, which was carved on the post, was the name of an island in the area. It was also the name of the group of the kind natives that inhabited it. It is possible that they colonists decided to live with the natives of Croatoan. Though there has not been a descent amount of evidence to prove this theory, there also has been no evidence against it.
The colonists were killed by the Native Americans. This is the most probable of all five theories. One important fact supports this theory. The English had before tried to start the colony of Roanokebefore. A little over a year had passed since they first started the colony, before explorers decided to check up on their hopeful progress. What these explorers found was one dead body. It was verified that it was the work of the Natives. the Natives pulled all of that off in between less than a two year period. While the “lost colony” had been deprived of its leader for three years. However there has still not been enough evidence to verify this theory.
It is a very notable fact that historians have no sure explanation about what exactly happened to the colonists and the residences of Roanoke in 1588. People have hundreds of theories on what occurred in that three year period. Some includethe spread of a disease, a hurricane. and even theories such as extraterrestrial abductions have been issued. Will we stay in the dark when it comes Roanoke? Or, will truth be discovered?

However, if we wish him to be more than a historical artifact, we must do more than just study him against the background of his time.
