An in-depth look at the complex history and mystery of England’s start in North America. Join park rangers to explore the events and unknowns surrounding the first English colony in North America. The program begins at the historic Waterside Theater and will cover the multiple English voyages, the interactions between the English and Native people and some theories about what happened to the Lost Colony. The program will continue with a tour to the archaeology site of the 1585 scientific workshop (this is not an active dig site but rather where known parts of the story exist) and the earthen fort which is a reproduction of one from the 1580's. Continuing through the forest and ending at the north shore of the island provides an opportunity to discuss the, yet to be discovered, location where the colonists built their homes.
