(music)

voice one:

welcome to this is america in voa special english. i'm steve ember.

voice two:

and i'm faith lapidus. roanoke island is off the mid-atlantic coast of the united states, in north carolina. in fifteen eighty-seven, more than one hundred people arrived from england to live on the island. three years later, they were gone. today we revisit the mystery of whatever happened to america's "lost colony."

(music)

voice one:

britain's first settlement of families in america was supposed to be along the chesapeake bay. the colonists, however, settled on roanoke island instead of sailing farther north. no one knows why.

roanoke is a low, narrow island between the mainland and the islands of the outer banks. the island has thick wetlands, tall oak trees and a lot of wildlife. today it appears much as it did when the colonists arrived.

voice two:

the one hundred seventeen men, women and children were not the first white people to try to live on the island. a group of more than one hundred englishmen had arrived two years earlier, in fifteen eighty-five. but they arrived too late in the year to plant crops, and their supplies nearly ran out. they also fought with indians. the englishmen returned home the following year.
