  • When the English came back, they found a deserted area with only 1 written clue; 'Croatoan'
  • Croatoan
  • What happened to the settlers?
  • Since the area where they lived suffered a major drought, they moved to live with other Native Americans for survival.
  • This is why some of the Native people had blue eyes and had some words in their vocabulary that sounded like English.
