The colonists an island. They could have been delived to a different island. But I think they went to the right island.
The colonists settle in on the island and become friendly with Native American Tribes. A expadation before them had made many Tribes not like them.
The leader of the colonists, John White leaves the island to get supplies. It took him 3 years to get back to the island.
John White comes back to find the island deserted. The only clue is the word Croatoan carved into a tree and the remains of a fort wall. I think that it means that they left the island to go to Croatoan island, with a friendly tribe , and took their houses with them.
John white came back around 1590 and they discovered the mystery. Even now nobody knows what happened to them. They found English stuff like beads, a ring, pots and pans.
I think that they went to Croatoan to live with a friendly Native American Tribe. I think that because they found English stuff on Croatoan island.
