Storyboard Text

  • Arrival to Roanoke
  • Shipwreck
  • Learning of the Dissapearance
  • About 150 people went to go live on Roanoke Island. Arriving in July 1587, John White was named governor.  After a month, White left for supplies. When he arrived in England, he learned they were at war with Spain. Since all ships were needed for war, supplies couldn't get to Roanoke. 
  • The colonists lacked supplies, since John White never returned to bring any. Out of needed items, they decided to sail to England as their best bet, but ended up shipwrecked.
  • John White and his crew returned to find nobody around; the Roanoke colony was completely empty. The only sign for where they went was 'Croatoan' written on a tree, and 'CRO' on a fencepost. John White tried to sail out to find them, but his expedition failed due to a hurricane, and he was never able to return to searching for the missing colonists. They were never found.
