Storyboard Text

  • The colonists landed in Roanoke in 1584 and even lived for a time in 1585. The colonists went there again in 1587 and had a feast. It was the hometown of their ally and interpreter Manteo and appears on all of John White's maps.
  • In 1993, Hurricane Emily surged feet of soil and sludge over Hatteras Island and ripped out many layers of sand in the process. As a result, an enormous amount of new artifacts were uncovered and found by local residents.
  • Dr. David Phelps had some Croatoan artifacts in the 1980's while doing work for the 400th anniversary of the first English voyages to the New Wrld. Phelps returned to the island and with help from a lot of volunteers launched another excavation.
  • This time not only were Croatoan artifacts found but European ones as well.
