On April 27, 1584, Raleigh dispatched an expedition led by Philip Amadas and Arthur Barlowe to explore the eastern coast of North America. They arrived on Roanoke Island on July 4, and sometime established the fort later. They found materials like oak wood, but they also traded with the natives for capital materials like bows, and other resources. 🐡
Raleigh dispatched a new group of 115 colonists (explorers Philip Amadas and Arthur Barloweto and other English men) establish a colony on Chesapeake Bay(a large body of water.). They were led by John White, an artist and friend of Raleigh who had accompanied the previous travels to Roanoke.
Once they had returned to England, there was not any trace of a single person. All they could find was a skeleton that may have been the remains of one of the English garrison, with some writing on the tree that was marked in, which spelled "CROATOAN", the name of an island nearby.
Still to this day we have no idea what happened to them, no one ever knew to be honest. Although we have some hints, we still down know, perhaps we could be able to find out in the future?
