"roanoke" Discussed on Strange and Unexplained with Daisy Eagan
"Whether john white knew much about the previous sadler situation. The poor land their lack of skills and their penchant for murder that could lead to an unhappy welcome upon his crew's arrival is unknown. John white might have lied or someone lied to him about the fate of the people who went before but whatever he told his wife they decided to go for it. She must have looked around at her tiny house. Maybe she saw the severed limbs of vagrants hanging in the town square. The local gong farmer was busy cleaning out a nearby ship it. She glanced down at the notice for a festive effigy. Burning that coming sabbath. And she was like whatever it is. It cannot be worse than this. And so in april fifteen eighty seven john white and one hundred and seventeen other englander. I boarded a ship and headed to the americas to start a new life. The journey took three months. Remember how i describe the fifteen hundreds of england. Now imagine what life would be like on a boat at that time you know. This wasn't a luxury yacht. Sure probably fewer effigies. But i'm thinking downgrade on almost all other friends. I'm sure whatever these poor people had to sleep on something like a wal matt. And don't forget john white's daughter. Eleanor was nearly six months pregnant when she boarded that boat. I'm gonna go ahead and assume she didn't have prenatal vitamins. You're not i mean. She was probably still drinking beer. Dear god so when the one hundred and eighteen. Intrepid englanders landed in roanoke. They did not find the outcropping of houses and the metal shop. The previous columnists had built nor did they find the handful of colonists left behind to defend the area. The buildings and the people were all gone. All they found was one sun bleached skeleton. He might as well have been holding a sign that said. This is a bad idea. Despite the literal harbinger of death that greeted them white and his contingent decided to stay awhile. They didn't actually want to settle at roanoke. Maybe because of the ominous pile of bones but instead intended on scouting for better land which by the way the first group had done to avail. This part of the story makes no sense to me. Once you get past the access to water soil food. what exactly are you looking for. If you consider wrongly but with conviction all this land is unclaimed and yours for the taking like i get that. A lot of the area was forest. But isn't that like good. Your plan is to build a bunch of buildings out of would. is there a june say quad to land seizing that. I don't know about a vibe. They were looking for. Maybe they wanted to go elsewhere because of the people who actually already lived there but considering the general point of and track record with colonizing. I can't imagine the english. we're like. Oh wait this is. Your spot are bad. Sorry we'll go back and tell the queen. This part is already. Take him about twenty years after this the english woodland in india and you can bet your ass. They weren't like wait. There's millions of people here already on nuts. oh well anyway. It just seems weird to me that they couldn't find any good spots for settling along the eastern seaboard but there. They went in search of the perfect newland. They looked and they looked and found nothing suitable and decided to stay at roanoke for the time being aka the one place that had been proven inhospitable. They began to rebuild the colony. Almost immediately they were attacked by a local tribe. This was not the same tribe the first group of colonizers had fucked with. But maybe these people have put two and two together thought. Hey pasty white folks get off a boat and we get smallpox white and some of his men decided to retaliate. But as would be the case with racial profiling in the new world forevermore. They attacked a different tribe by mistake. What's strange about this is that white would later go. On to paint watercolor showing scenes from various local tribes meaning. He was somehow able to distinguish them enough for paintings but not for attacking anyway about a month after landing in roanoke in august eighty seven under constant threat by the various local tribes. The english had managed to antagonize them one way or another. Eleanor gave birth to her daughter. Virginia dare who has the somewhat dubious distinction of being the first white person born on the continent and was also named after the queen's virginal status ma'am talk about the poetry of that name. This whole fucking excursion was a virginia. Dare thank you ladies and gentlemen. Within a month of his granddaughter's birth john white went back to england for more supplies guys. I think it's fair to say that the story thus far is full of strange some would say very poor decisions on the part of john white like getting on a boat to sail halfway around the world with no true sense of what was on the other side. Like having your daughter do that while six months pregnant to not be freaked by the fact that the colony you expected to find as totally gone with only one set of bones to indicate someone was ever even there to decide that still a good place to lay down your roots but then leaving your entire family right after getting there to go get more stuff like..
No More White Actors in ‘Redface’ for Native American Roles in ‘Lost Colony’
"The longest running outdoor theatrical production will no longer feature white actors in makeup playing native americans. The virginia pilot reported the lost colony. Drama staged on roanoke island will now higher native americans to play indigenous people. The play dramatizes. The story of one hundred seventeen colonists sent by walter. Raleigh from england to roanoke island in fifteen eighty seven. The shift was spurred by a dot. Org petition started by a student at east carolina university calling for an end to the production. The roanoke island historical association which produces the drama recruited the chairman of the lombi indian tribe to its board and hired a choreographer who is navajo and clinked alum bi musician and linguist helped translate the songs into the tribes and native actors will now speak their lines and algonquin. The language used by tribes living in eastern north carolina in the fifteen hundreds
Utilities will not be shut off for customers who missed payments in Virginia
"Provider says customers who've fallen behind on their bills might be getting cut off notices in the mail. But service won't be turned off Appalachian power, telling the Roanoke Times this week. The notices are a formality sent out in part because many financial aid agencies require people to have a disconnection notice to qualify for help with bills. Mailer should make it clear no household services being disconnected due to late payments. New state budget legislation that took effect last month indefinitely extended a moratorium on utility disconnections across Virginia. Sports is next.
"roanoke" Discussed on Parcast Presents
"It invent your possibility at bloomberg dot com. The story of the roanoke colony begins in fifteen eighty seven with the english explorer. Sir walter raleigh. An explorer is a very loose term. Here raleigh is a massive flirt and a chronic dresser two things that make him a favourite with queen. Elizabeth i to the point that she gives him permission to tax all the winemakers in england and presents him with a palace on the river. Thames elizabeth is great at giving gifts and when raleigh's half-brother the explorer sir humphrey gilbert dies in fifteen eighty three. The queen decides raleigh can inherit gilbert royal charter. It gives him permission to colonize america on behalf of the british crown. All the queen wants in return is one fifth of whatever gold or silver raleigh. Finds there to be clear. Elizabeth has no intention of letting raleigh go to america himself so instead raleigh picks a watercolour artist named john. White to be the colony's governor which is as bizarre as it sounds. White has no obvious skills aside from painting to this day. We don't even know where he was born or who his parents were. All we know is heat accompanied at least one of raleigh's expeditions to america. And he's excited to go again. That enthusiasm is pretty much. What gets white the job white even recruits his pregnant daughter nineteen year old. Eleanor dare and her husband and a nias to join him along with over one hundred men women and children. They're supposed to head to virginia's chesapeake bay where they'll build the first english settlement in the new world governor white in the colonists set sail for chesapeake on may eighth eighty seven. They're all on board the lead ship. The lion along with the captain of the fleet and experienced navigator named simon fernandez fernandez has gone plenty of voyages for sir walter raleigh before so. He knows his way around. America's east coast. He's helming the lion followed by one smaller ship. And one unnamed fly boat that carries all of the supplies the colony needs to build a settlement at chesapeake. Now governor white writes in his diary about their first day at sea and it sounds like everything is normal and then he just doesn't record anything else until may sixteenth eight days later now to be fair. Every time i've started a journal it goes about the same but in this entry white mentions that fernandez allowed their fleet to disperse causing them to lose track of the fly boat. Which is a huge problem for. Dan has just made a mistake. That cost them all their supplies. But it seems like this is just part of an overall problem with fernandez. In white's diary he writes about. How anxious the navigator seems to get rid of colonists so he can start privateer ring which is basically crown sanctioned pirating against spanish ships end while. I'm sure that sounded like fun to him. Fernandez has a job to do. Also white is in charge of this entire edition. He should be chewing. Nana's out for letting this happen. But instead he does nothing. He writes a few passive aggressive diary entries but apparently he's too much of a coward to actually challenge fernandez. Everyone just sort of hopes that the fly boat will meet up with them in america now to clarify. The colonist aren't taking a direct shot to chesapeake bay burst. They're supposed to visit a place called roanoke island off the coast of modern day. North carolina white has specific orders from sir walter. Raleigh to check in on fifteen english soldiers. Who were left in charge of the fort there. The lion arrives in the shallow waters near roanoke around july. Twenty second white and forty of his men hop into the smaller ship to go ashore. But just as they're about to sail off one of fernandez men yells over to them from the lion. He basically says this is our last. Stop when you guys are done with your little field trip. We're sending the rest of the colonists ashore with you in other words. Fernandez is staging a mutiny. One that leaves governor white and his colonists stranded on roanoke island which is just mean and crazy but again white. Here's this information and doesn't even try to argue. He just sort of sales off in days toward roanoke to go. Look for the fifteen soldiers and things only get more strange. As the day goes on as white pulls up to roanoke. He fully expects the english soldiers to have seen their ships and be waiting on shore. But when the men's splash onto the beach nothing no welcoming committee. No pat on the back. Just dark silent forest and this totally creeps white out. These are english soldiers. They should be here following protocol. Something must be terribly wrong. White isn't sure what to make of this. But at this point the sun is setting they have no other choice than to keep heading north toward where the fort is supposed to be then right as it gets dark. One of the men comes across something terrifying. It's the skeleton of an english soldier half buried in the dirt. Everyone starts freaking out like has there been a massacre. Why did this guy die. And why was he never given a proper burial. And by this point it's too dark to reach fort white and his men have to sleep in the open air near this half buried dead guy hoping that whatever or whoever killed him will leave them alone the next day they press onward until finally they see the fourth of the head but when they get there the whole place is deserted white says it was raised down as though there were some kind of struggle but the houses themselves are standing unhurt and melon. Vines are growing over everything with deer gnawing at the fruit like the entire thing is just surreal at this point. Not only are white and his party creeped out there depressed. No one wants to be forced to live on a strange island with a skeleton and an overgrown four and fourteen missing men. Fortunately the flyby that had been lost at sea knew enough to head toward roanoke for a rendezvous. It arrives on july twenty fifth. So just three days. After the lion and the colonists could weep with relief they finally have their seeds and other supplies like the situation is still far from ideal but at least they stand a chance of survival now for the next couple of weeks things limp along the colonists are patching up the fort and on august eighteenth whites daughter. Eleanor gives birth to a baby girl named virginia. Dare the first. English person. Born in america but as august comes to a close white and the colonist realize. This isn't going to work. It is way too late in the summer to plant a harvest with winter approaching. Something needs to be done asap now. I should mention that during this first month. Fernandez just kind of hangs around offshore on the lion so apparently despite all his hurry to go loot spanish ships he's content to just sit and watch the colonists squirm. I mean the whole thing is just very weird. Fortunately white gets the nerve to talk to him and the to come to an agreement white can hitch a ride aboard the fly boat which will take him back to england for help white leaves at the end of august and by the time his ship reaches england. It's november white is itching to get supplies and get back to roanoke. But just as he's ready to depart in the spring of fifteen eighty eight. Here's the worst possible news. England is at war with spain. All vessels must be used to fight. The spanish armada. Now again sir walter. Raleigh commissioned his entire expedition and he's the queen's favourite so over the next year he does manage to secure couple ships to go back to roanoke with white but each time bayer met with some sort of bad luck whether it's french pirates or whether they always have to turn back it's not until march fifteen ninety that white finally leaves england on a successful voyage when he reaches roanoke. It's august eighteenth. Virginia's third birthday. Why can't wait to see his granddaughter again. But he's in for the worst case of deja vu ever because as soon as he sets foot on the island. it's clear. no one is there to meet him.

He even sounds a trumpet call but still no answer so white. Any other men make their way inland toward the fort. They're walking along through the overgrowth when suddenly one of them lets out a yell runs over to see the other guy pointing at a tree. It has a strange message carved into its trunk in all capital letters. See our crow. It's been roughly chip into the tree. As though whoever wrote it was in a rush and it seems like an unfinished were. It feels ominous so why in his men cautiously make their way forward until eventually they see the fort ahead just like three years ago. The place is abandoned not a soul in sight. Only this time white as the fort had been neatly disassembled like there wasn't a rush leaving at all but the houses surrounding the fort including whites and his daughter eleanor's are in shambles. There's broken would everywhere as if they've been smashed. None of this makes sense. But according to white he had given clear instructions to the colonists before he left. If they were ever in danger they were supposed to leave behind. The symbol of a maltese cross. Which if you don't know what that is just picture four arrows pointing at each other white and the other men look high and low. But there's no sign of the maltese cross. There is however one message. It's on one of the fence post surrounding the fort and it's carved in all capital letters like the tree in the woods. Only this time. It's very clean and.

Owning a business on the front line of sea-level rise
"North Carolina's Outer Banks are dotted with vacation beaches and historic communities but the sweeping water views do not only draw tourists to give local to front row seat to sea level rise. Many like Jamie Henderson more frequent floods. Anderson is the owner of downtown books on Roanoke Island since she opened the store there eight years ago it's flooded six times with anywhere from an inch, two feet of water. Sometimes, storms at the costs and other times all it takes is wind and a high tide. No rain, no hurricane, but the waters inch deep in my store. To protect your inventory Anderson keeps books off the floor. We use lots of tables and don't do anything to the floor. We just kind of paint it with floor paint every couple years because it's going to get wet. So there's no point having any carpet down there.

Where did they go
"Welcome to kiss myths and mysteries. I'm your host kid chrome by popular demand I'm revisiting the issue of vanishing 's. Where did they go the roanoke colonists Amelia. EARHART would a Percy Fawcett vanishing in search for the city of Z. can anything truly vanished in this world, the great vanishing people and things Amelia. EARHART disappeared over the Pacific. There's no doubt that she crash landed or ditched her plane. And of course the question remains why she captured by the Japanese did she and and. Her navigator starved to death on a remote island, but she didn't vanish in the true sense of the word, the question simply what happened to her. In contrast, we have the vanishing of flight nineteen, a group of maybe bombers disappeared during postwar training mission. Now they vanished. No oil slicks no wreckage. The five planes it made up the nineteen. None were ever recovered no trace. A search team dispatched to look for them disappeared, but there was an oil slick in wreckage in. In an explosion was noted the five TM's vanished. The rescue team disappeared by ask a question again. Can anything actually vanished from this world? Let's look again. The Franklin expedition that set sail in eighteen, forty, five with two ships in search of the northwest passage. Now there's an incident that disappeared in the Arctic and were considered lost for two hundred years, perhaps vanished, but the two ships, nearly forty crew, simply vanishing was considered a big mystery, almost as big as Amelia earhart recently. Recently, both ships were discovered as well as many of the graves of the crew yet in the eighteen eighties. We have a bride and groom riding in a wagon. The ten miles from bake of Oregon across follow simply vanish. Their progress has been monitored, and when they didn't arrive at the ranch across hollow where they were to wed a month long search was put on an and not a trace was found not of the horses, the wagon or the bride and groom. That I. my point is that people and things do vanish, but do they vanish from this world. The question is addressed by Professor Vincent Pool he stays did Albert Einstein that there are multiple dimensions, but professor pool believes that there are not only many dimensions, but I in there every evolution they are similar to Earth and they are connected to our dimension by what he calls umbilical connections, and that an individual can easily pass through one of these umbilical connections and seemingly vanish. He also spouses a theory that the reason that we have no contact with you. Outside of our atmospheres of flying saucers or flying unidentified flying objects come from another dimension Professor Pool Sites Fifteenth, century issue between Spanish conquistadors and a priest in ancient village of Crisco, where a priest racing ahead of the Spanish invasion took a gold disc from a church, and ran into the Higher Markelle mountains for upon he met to Shaman who took the disc impressed into rock face that opened the door to another dimension. Sounds like a nice story, right? Yet. There is a place in the higher mountains were stone face has been etched, and a small seemingly pressed into stone at the center of that small door. There is a indentation that circular. That is the same size as the disc taken by the priest when he fled the Spanish. Pool claims this represents the. Into another dimension, so do people and things vanish before you scoff at the idea. Take a trip to Peru. The high remark mountains and try to explain the small door the disc indentation. They're gonNA. Decide and if you can't make the trip, we'll google it up. It's an interesting part of the issue of can things vanish

"They're also if a native American shows this to you. We promised you would give them plenty of presents. It was signed E. WD. The professors believe the stone was authentic three hundred and fifty years. After the colony's disappearance and adventurous Californian had literally just stumbled upon the answers in May of nineteen thirty eight. The emory professors published an article on their findings and the news went public. One of the professors Dr Heywood Peers purchased the stone from Hammond for nearly one thousand dollars. Which would be over eighteen thousand dollars. Today he kept at the university in Gainesville Georgia but he was eager to find the second stone that had been mentioned the one with the names of the other settlers so he posted a five hundred dollar cash reward to anyone who turned up results in nineteen thirty nine. A man named Bill. Eberhardt came forward to claim the prize. He had found another stone but it wasn't just one everhart produced a total of forty two different dare stones and collected over two thousand dollars for them. Roughly thirty seven thousand dollars today except there was one major problem. While everhart stones told a convincing story of how the roanoke south they look completely different than the original investigative reporter Boyden sparks published a critique of the dare stones in one thousand nine forty one and it plays scrutiny on. Hammond's as well. There were allegedly problems with Stones Anachronistic Language Inconsistencies with spelling and historical accuracy. On top of this they were now professional disagreements about the use of Nores initials E wd. Some scholars say initialising was not a standard way to sign a name in sixteenth century England thus the stones had to be faked but sparks is biggest. Point of contention was with the person who found them. He found that Eberhardt was a professional stonecutter. Who had been caught making forgeries in the past? The stones were immediately discredited despite lack of evidence. Even Hammond Stone was considered a fraud. All of the dare stones were then placed in the renowned university basement where they remained out of sight and out of mind until just recently in two thousand sixteen. The president of Brunel University and claim geologist decided it was time to run more tests. They discovered that the first stone. The one Hammond found was distinctly different than the rest. The coloring around the engravings implied that the markings had been weathered by time long enough that they may actually date back to eleanor dares lifetime they also found its mineral composition indicated that it came from Virginia Not North Carolina. Where Hammond discovered it. Which makes you wonder whether Virginia Dare was committed to lugging that twenty-one poundstone to share her story or if it to might be fake as of today the stone cannot be officially categorized as a hoax. So let's assume for a second that those were eleanor. Dayers authentic words which brings us to our final possible theory that the survivors moved up towards the Chesapeake Bay and may have resettled just outside of Jamestown. By the time the new colonists settled in Jamestown in sixteen o seven they had been well versed in the legend of Roanoke and the citizens of Jamestown felt confident. The roanoke colonists were somewhere nearby. Stories began with Francis a Tougher for the Jamestown settlement. He claimed that when he was out mapping the area in sixteen o seven he was approached by four white men. These men claimed to be European colonists. Who were living amongst the local Iroquois tribe? Another colonist named George Perry wrote in his journal that he had seen a young native American around the age of ten who had hair a perfect yellow with reasonable white skin which is a miracle then only a few years later in sixteen twelve. The secretary of Jamestown Williams streaky reported that he also saw a group of Englishmen. A girl two boys and four men who told them they were living with the local E-e-e-e-no tribe but had been taken as slaves. Streaky also wrote that. He's spotted local natives. Living in two story stone houses a model that the English commonly used which suggests former colonist had been there to influence it years before the Jamestown settlers arrived. The secretary of Jamestown went onto document these encounters and create an assessment of what he believed had happened to the lost colony. His report suggested that the roanoke colonists did in fact move north. They were then exterminated by the power ten tribe. The problem with strategies accounts was that he never seemed to up with any of the potential Englishman. Nor was there any proof that they had come from the roanoke colony specifically? They could have been a part of a small expedition or they could have been privateers which is why very isn't exactly our strongest. There's just no way to confirm or deny anything but that could change with modern day capabilities like DNA testing confirming the assimilation. Theory is more possible now than ever in two thousand seven. The Lost Colony of Roanoke DNA project was founded by genealogist Roberta. Estes. She wanted to see if they could conclude what happened to the colonists by examining native descendants. Dna work would allow her to compare the genetic similarities between a man whose family was known to live on Hatteras island or even amongst the Chesapeake ends in the sixteenth century. She could then match those results to a database and see if there was anyone who also shared connections to the colonists bloodline as of now S.'s. Project has yet to produce any conclusive evidence. The hope is that over time. Archaeological digs in the outer. Banks might provide more skeletal remains for DNA comparison if estes can extract DNA off a confirmed roanoke settler. It will be easy to compare with native Americans living today. Perhaps then we can finally solve the mystery of the lost colonists. Or maybe there's an easier answer in two thousand eighteen national geographic journalist. Andrew Lawler paid a visit to Maryland Berry Morrison the current chief of the Roanoke Hatteras tribe. It was a rainy. Spring morning. Morrison explained to lawler that despite her mixed white and black she is native. American based on tradition Morrison is a descendant of the local tribes near Roanoke the same tribes that had close and often hostile relations with the roanoke settlers lawler pro. Morrison hoping to find out more about her family history and whether she was told of any direct familial connection to the settlers. Morrison was happy to talk. The sweet faced woman looked at lawler and stated as a matter of fact we killed the men and took the women and children. Lawler was gobsmacked had the centuries long search for the truth. Been Right here in this Virginia. Cottage all along. According to Mrs Morrison Yes Morrison pulled out a thick family album and showed photos to lawler the pictures documented Morrison's family history and prove that her ancestors skin color range from ivory to Ebony but there was one blank space in the album that lawler questioned it held a caption but no photo the caption referred to a person. She was my great great grandmother. She was from Roanoke Island. Morrison told lawler Virginia Dare Bowser today. So maybe the roanoke colonists really had meant something by the words Croat Toan after all Morrison Story. Maybe the best piece of evidence we have suggesting. The colonists really did and up with the Croat tones peacefully or otherwise and John Weitz missing granddaughter. Virginia Dare Survived. Long enough to hand her name down through the generations of Kroto including her alleged descend in Virginia to lay. Perhaps the answers to one of the greatest American mysteries lies in the stories passed down through the centuries an ancestral secret still well protected by their great great grandchildren today. Who have proven time does not.

"Guns perhaps ones previously used by the roanoke colonists. One of the most convincing historical accounts to support this theory was given by John. Lawson an English explorer who came to Hatteras island in seventeen. O One Lawson road that the Croat Taiwan's it'd that many of their ancestors were white. The truth of which is confirmed by gray is being found frequently amongst the grow Italians and no other natives while a pair of grey is sounds uniquely European. It hardly confirms that the roanoke colony as a whole assimilated with the Kroto and tribe. It's possible that the two groups broke created by never settled together Brett Riggs. Another archaeologist out of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill has his doubts about this theory as well he doesn't believe that the artifacts found during Horton's digs prove assimilation. In fact he thinks that the native Americans simply claimed what was left behind at the abandoned settlement. Horton himself even admits that the artifacts he and his teams have found. Don't have conclusive origins much of what they uncovered was mixed in with other objects dating well into the seventeenth century. One Hundred Years after the roanoke colonists had disappeared but this seemed curious to Horton. He started to wonder if the objects had been left behind with the Kroto and tribe for safekeeping possibly when they split off in search of more suitable long-term locations in two thousand eleven that theory gain traction with new evidence from a rather unassuming source. A professor of economics managed to unlock a hidden message that revealed the colonists might have moved inland. Brand Lane. Professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill had fascination with the lost colony since childhood. He also happened to be the proud owner of one of John. White's original watercolour maps. He had noticed too small patches on the piece that he owned that looked fainter than the rest of the chart for much of his life. He didn't think anything of it until two thousand eleven when he got in touch with the British Museum to learn more about the maps distinctive features at the museum. They placed the map on a light. Box what they found was remarkable. These diluted patches actually showed hidden markings a form of invisible ink which may have been made with acid from something like lemon juice or urine highlighted a hidden fort located only fifty miles inland from roanoke island enthusiasts dubbed the Fort Site X. This information seem to corroborate the colonists original plan to move to the mainland or farther north towards an area now known as the Chesapeake Bay Though. The discovery of an invisible message was exciting. The treasure hunt let them down was less so they did find some shards of pottery and a brass buckle that could have dated back to the English settlement but as time wore on it became clear that there was nothing to suggest that the colony as a whole had relocated to site acts but across the river from site x was eaten North Carolina. The same town where Lewis Hammond had discovered a highly unusual stone seventy years earlier and on. It might have been a message from John White's daughter. Eleanor dare explaining the final chapters of the lost roanoke colony.

Last week we examined the history of the settlement starting at its founding in fifteen eighty seven it was established as a convenient base for British private tearing but the tiny colony had no shortage of hardships. Black food treacherous storms and hostile relationships with natives then in fifteen ninety when ships arrived carrying emergency supplies for the settlers they found the camp was abandoned. It was as if the settlers had vanished into thin air this week. We'll explore some of the most popular theories surrounding the colonists disappearance. I will examine whether they might have been wiped out by disease famine drought or even cannibalism. Then we into the possibility that they may have assimilated with the local natives. Finally will scrutinize. Lewis. Hammons remarkable. Find the I dare stone. It may be evidence that the colonists migrated inland and further north. Maybe they didn't disappear at all in August. Fifteen ninety the governor of the roanoke colony John White returned to the settlement. After nearly three years away. He was looking forward to seeing his daughter son-in-law and three year old granddaughter again but when white arrived he was greeted by nothing more than a pit in his stomach. The settlers and his family were nowhere to be found but they did leave behind a few clues. Upon arriving at the village whites crew spotted a tree with three letters carved into its trunk C. R. O. Wight suspected it was a secret sign. He had a discussion with the settlers before leaving for England if they moved to safer more inhabitable lands. They should leave a message as to where they as white and the others explored the abandoned settlement. They found that. The homes had been carefully dismantled. It was as if they had taken them down to rebuild them in another location but their guns and weapons had been left behind leading white to believe that they hadn't experienced any immediate threat and unopposed of a Defensive Wall. When that was built during white's absence was another clue an engraving that read Croat Toan but white had said to carve a cross over their new location. If they left in distress there was no cross. The only sign of distress was this new wall likely built to defend the colony from what one could only assume we're dangerous enemies. White believed the colonists. Move North to seek refuge with their allies. The croat-owned tribe but he'd been gone for three years without any form of communication. Circumstances could have changed regardless he left the island that day with the intention of returning shortly to explore. Kroto an island fifty miles south of roanoke but white never got the chance. It wasn't until two decades later when the Jamestown colony settled in modern day. Virginia that search parties were sent looking for the roanoke settlers and they found no trace of the roanoke colonists which brings us to our first theory that the settlers never resettled and instead were wiped out by other forces like famine disease drought or even cannibalism. There are a few perils that the roanoke colonists likely found unavoidable in their new habitat. Whore sanitation likely led to cases of scurvy typhoid fever even dysentery. All of which can be deadly without proper medication. There's also documentation that. The settlers were never taught how to fish grow crops or properly tend to their meat. Which would have made them prone to foodborne illnesses. But none of these should have resulted in the death of over one hundred settlers all at once in nineteen ninety two the National Park Service funded a project to better understand the environmental conditions for early settlements. Like James Down and roanoke. They partnered with climatologist. David W Staley Staley collected core samples from old Bald Cypress trees along the border between Virginia and North Carolina. These chunk samples were from trees. That were alive between eleven. Eighty five and nineteen eighty-four by measuring the size of each tree ring. Staley was able to get a reasonably accurate environmental reading. He could estimate the average rainfall and temperatures of each year within that period. What he found was that the roanoke colony lived during one of the most extraordinary droughts in the past eight hundred years so while roanoke colonists have been criticised for their poor planning and survival skills. It's fair to say that anyone would have had a hard time surviving and according to Staley. The area was still suffering from drought in sixteen. O seven when Jamestown colonists settled just north of the Virginia border. Seventeen years after white had discovered the roanoke colony's disappearance unlike the roanoke colonists. Jamestown settlers kept good records of their experience in America granted. There's no way of knowing whether roanoke record's disappeared along with their authors but given what we know now. Jamestown is a useful point of reference to help us better understand roanoke and between sixteen nine and sixteen ten Jamestown nearly failed just like roanoke. Nearly half of the three hundred fifty down colonists died in that one year neither they nor the local native tribes were able to grow a sufficient amount of crops due to the drought. That didn't stop new colonists. From arriving though in fact one of the only reasons that Jamestown survive because of a constant influx of new settlers but more than seventy five percent of those who came to James. Down by sixteen twenty five died in total thousand. Eight hundred men women and children which means that the roanoke colony.

"It was August of one thousand nine hundred thirty seven Louis Hammond and his wife were road tripping through the southern United States with the windows down and a breeze in their hair they passed a sign welcoming them to Eden North Carolina. Lewis was feeling Ansi needed to stretch so he pulled over under a shaded canopy of trees of highway seventeen while his wife stayed in the car bopping. Along to the Radio Lewis stepped into the woods to search for Hickory nuts as he strolled into the brush. Lewis nearly tripped over something large lying in the dirt. It was a smooth stone with curved and it had faded taxed carved into its surface unable to make heads or tails of the inscription Lewis. Did what anyone might do. He hoisted the twenty-one poundstone in brought it back to show his wife after a few of trying to decipher the text. Lewis gave up and tossed it into the trunk of his car. And that's where the stone remained for the next three months forgotten as nothing more than an interesting keepsake then on November eighth nineteen thirty seven as the couple was driving through Atlanta. Georgia they passed emory university. Lewis decided to make a pit stop. Maybe the university's professors would be able to make sense of the stones. Engravings Hammond watched as the professors work together. Trying to decipher what? The stones taxed could mean in due time. The stone would reveal one of America's greatest mysteries it was written documentation of the untold story of the lost. Roanoke.

"On August Twenty Seventh John. White and twelve other crew members sailed back to England midway through their journey. The ship was caught in a storm that steered the vessel far off course eventually they landed on the shores of Ireland and from there they were able to safely return home by then. It was already November. Fifteen eighty-seven white wanted to be quick. His first stop was to meet with Sir Walter. Raleigh get supplies and immediately prepare a trip back to America. He hoped he'd be given a fleet of seven or eight fully stocked ships by spring of fifteen eighty. Eight winter came and went as each day passed. White became more eager to return to his daughter and grandchild thankfully Raleigh was equally as invested in the families left behind and saw to whites demands. But just as the fleet was scheduled to depart in the spring white received an order forbidding him to leave. England had just gotten word that Spain's our motto was about to invade. A war was coming and the Queen insisted that England needed every last ship in case they needed to retaliate. Well England waited for the Spanish Armada to attack white looked for loophole to get around the order and somehow he found one were not entirely certain what strengths he pulled but white managed to detach two ships from his old companion. Greenville's fleet on April twenty second fifteen eighty eight white set sail with those two ships a fresh batch of supplies and a group of new colonists just after a few days at sea they encountered enemy ships by May. The two ships were so battered that they had no choice but to return home to England for necessary repairs. White never gave up on his mission to return to his family. Raleigh and investors were losing interest by the minute especially in the wake of war but by March fifteen eighty nine almost a year after his initial attempt whites mission gained a second wind whites old friend Thomas. Harriet published a book on the colony which became instrumental in gaining new backers with an influx of cash. Progress could be made in the early months of fifteen ninety nearly three years after he left. Roanoke whites new fleet was ready to return but they were setting out under one condition. They had to privateer any enemy. Ships spotted as they went. It wasn't until mid August fifteen ninety that whites fleet finally dropped anchor in the Outer Banks. Soft roanoke island wide was overjoyed. When he spotted smoke rising in the distance he was certain. The colony was still alive and well. The next morning he woke up eager to return to his daughter and grandchild he began leading the new crew to the settlement as white and his men arrived at the colony. They noticed a tree carved with the letters c. r. o but the colonists themselves were nowhere to be found maybe they had moved wide recalled. The colonies plans to one day. Leave Roanoke Island and migrate elsewhere but as white wandered through the settlement. He noticed that many of the homes hadn't been dismantled. They were intended to be easily taken down and rebuilt with convenience on one entrance post. He noticed the word pro toan was carved but there appear to be no sign of a distress signal. Instead the crew found guns and other weapons left behind. It almost appeared that the colonists had left in an orderly fashion white suspected that they migrated down to Italian. He instructed his crew to move the ship South and re anchor in that area but as the crew attempted to pull up the anchors a cable snapped and left them with only one anchor remaining their food. Supply was already dangerously low and they were almost out of freshwater preceding would-be too dangerous. The crew decided the best plan was to return to the. West indies where they could re up their fresh water supply. Their hope was to return to Croat tone in the spring but they never would storms forced the crew to return to England in the mystery of what happened to the colonists to Whitestone and granddaughter remained unsolved sometime in the early sixteen hundreds rally sent another crew to roanoke but the men did little work to search for the colony instead. They gathered the Wood and roots that had been in demand back in Europe and returned home just after one month. Many believe that Raleigh didn't want to learn the fate of the colonists if they were found dead his project was a failure if it remained uncertain he could still find funding for future endeavors to this day. No one is certain what happened to the settlers of the roanoke colony which is why next week. We'll take a deep dive into the many theories that attempt to explain what happened to the lost colony like the possibility that the colonists were not able to survive the conditions of the new world drought famine or disease might have brought about their end. They may have resorted to cannibalism just to stay alive. We'll also explore the possibility that the settlers banded together with the croat-owned tribe for resources and protection. Some may have even assimilated and finally will examine whether the roanoke colonists decided to move further north towards friendlier. A set of stones uncovered in the northern part of North Carolina during the nineteen thirties may tell the tale of the lost roanoke colony after all..

"Al Quinn. It was an inexplicable curse but the colonists believed that God was striking down the native Americans because the local tribes had made plans to conspire against the English thus far the Elgon Queens had only been accommodating to the Englishman welcomed them onto their land with open arms and worked hard to maintain peace among their new neighbors but now they felt the Englishman had paid them with a curse. The local tribes had a tough decision to face. They wondered if it was best to maintain peace with the colonists or perhaps it was time to fight back by March of fifteen eighty six less than a year. After their arrival. The native Americans had enough. The Elgon Queen drew up a plan that would order their tribesmen to stop all contact with the English Governor Lane caught wind of the plan and started to worry over. Just how dangerous things might get. He told his men to separate live off the land until Grenville was scheduled to return with supplies in about a month. He convinced everyone to stay out of the way of the Elgon Korean for now but as they did it became increasingly clear. Just how dependent they were on the tribes to survive the Elgon Queens stop supplying the settlement with food and provisions entirely. The took a step farther when they appeared in the colony at night and remove the fish from the traps and disassembled them. They knew the colonist wouldn't have a clue how to repair them themselves. Many oh and one cheese the communists native American allies were in a tough position while many oh managed to remain neutral. One cheese chose to side with his tribe in fact he began urging Elgon Korean tribal leaders to take more aggressive action against the settlement. And it's very possible that one cheese words were taken very seriously because a new plan was developed. They were going to attack the colonists and murder Governor Lane along with his principal officers. But it wasn't just the Elgon Queens. The English had problems with they had also jeopardized relations with Chouan oak tribe who occupied the land. Just outside of Roanoke Lane in his men feared that the Chohan Oaks might be the next group to threaten the colonists and decided to get ahead of it they took the king of the tribes son. Skibo hostage as an insurance policy one evening in the quiet of the night. Ski Co shared some news with his English captors. Not Long. Before he was kidnapped he had been dining was the leader of the Elgon Queens when Gina who later renamed himself. I miss a pen to indicate his distrust for the settlers. It was here that ski co learned about their planned attack on the colonists the attack was set to take place on June tenth. Fifteen eighty six which gave the columnists plenty of time to stop it. So Lane came up with his own strategy. He got word to Bamiro. Pan that the English were heading south to Kroto an island where they would meet the English fleet to leave but of course lane had other plans lane in his men would actually make their way to the mainland where Pan was stationed on their way. They could attack the Elgon Queen village on Roanoke island but to do that. They needed to make sure that no one could get away and warned the others. They were coming lane instructed his men to steal all of the canoes but his soldiers were caught in the act. By the Elgon Quinn's their battle ensued prematurely. Four Gagarin's were killed while the rest fled the scene and went to alert. Sapan even with his plan. Foiled Lane was undeterred. The following morning he and twenty five of his men set off to the mainland to confront permissive. Fan Lane was welcomed into permissive pans circle with open arms. They were under the pretense that the colonists had come to discuss the release of Skibo. And we're happy to talk with the English at some point during their discussion lane gave his men a signal crying. Christ our victory then. The colonists attacked the native Americans and shut. Amici's an injured. Amoeba PAN took off into the woods pursued by lanes men moments later lanes men reemerged from the woods with Emeka Pans. Detached head afterward of Pans murder spread. The colonists began to fear for their lives that they didn't have to fear. For long a week. After depends demise captains stafford caught the site of twenty-three sales off the coast of Kroto in Ireland where he was currently stationed but there was no way for them to know if the men on board were allies or more enemies.

"Inland but before they could empty the ships of their supplies. The Tiger was caught up in a terrible coastal storm and suffered severe damage. The colonists lost more than half of their provisions. It was a disaster. The men felt a sense of doom before they could even settle on roanoke island. There now weren't enough resources to feed everyone for a year as initially planned not to mention the location wasn't as ideal as Barlow and a modest had made it seen the banks were shallow in the storms were frequent. It would make their private tearing efforts. Difficult Governor Lane wondered if Roanoke island should be a jumping off point to find more suitable grounds inland. After all they had investors to please but for the moment they stayed put by August. The Tiger was repaired and ready to return to England for more supplies lane and one hundred men stayed behind to develop and sustain the colony but given their diminished supplies. They needed to learn to live off the land. Well the crews were preparing to return to England. Rally was preparing to send a second fleet to join the colonists in America. If he timed it right they would arrive with supplies. Just as the others departed but days before the second fleet was supposed to set sail for America the Queen Forced Raleigh to divert his ships to Newfoundland. She declared war against Spain. As a result that secondary fleet never made its way west to relieve lane and the early roanoke colony. Maybe it had their entire fate would have changed coming up things take a dark turn when the Englishman start to force their way of life up on the local native Americans. Now back to the story in fifteen eighty queen. Elizabeth approved the first expedition to colonize America. Six hundred men sailed west to set up a base to host privateers but within days of arriving in Roanoke the settlers lost most of their provisions in a storm. Many were forced to cut the visit short and return to England to restock. Only a hundred men remained to maintain the colony under the guidance of governor. Ralph Lane. Roanoke island is located about sixty five miles south of the current border of Virginia. It was hardly an ideal location for agricultural development but the hundred remaining colonists believed at least at first that this plot of land was enough to them. The land was lash with Oak Cedar and Maple all perfect for building. There were fruit trees Berry Bushes in grapevines during the warm months. The colonists felt confident. That if they were smart about their rations they could last until winter when the fleets were scheduled to return. Sir Walter. Raleigh had drafted up blueprints for the settlements colonists. Were to build a small market square in the center of the town around that they would build a five sided fort for protection. Their homes were made of timber and designed to be easily dismantled. Just in case the colony needed to take them down and rebuild them at a new location. If all went according to plan building the structures would only take a month except modern archaeologists believe the settlers didn't follow rallies plans at all. It's unclear why but the settlers actually built their homes outside of the fort only the marketplace and principal buildings were inside making their homes. The most vulnerable should enemies arise. It must not have mattered to them. At this point in time the only enemies the settlers could foresee with Spanish and Mother Nature but as the months passed and winner. Ju- near the settlers began to panic supplies. Were running low crops. Were dying off things. Were getting desperate but luckily neighboring tribes recognized their struggles. They began to offer help. Was Basic. Survival needs thanks to the previous expedition. The settlers had already developed a bit of a relationship with the allegation and Kroto tribes. You may recall Croat Toan from the beginning of this episode. It's the name of both the southern island and the tribe who lived there luckily for the settlers they had manu and one cheese representatives from each of those tribes who were able to bridge the gap between natives and settlers. The Elgon Koreans had occupied the land for more than eight hundred years. There were about ten different Agung. Queen villages in the Outer Banks Region. And at least one of them was stationed on. Roanoke island and they welcomed the English settlers with open arms. They shared their food helped them fish and offered their labor all while expecting nothing in return the columnist would have died that winter had it not been for the kindness of the local tribes but communication was still a problem. Luckily some of Raleigh's experts who chose to remain in roanoke had also taken an interest in spending time with the Queen tribe to better understand their language and way of life. Two of those experts were cartographer and painter John. White and scientist and mathematician. Thomas Harriet together. They plan to study the Algerians and decided they would create a report on their findings. Hopefully this information could educate the people of England or more specifically their financial backers on their experience with the tribes they would also include things like plants animals medicines Algonquin traditions culture religion and so on as the colonists waited for supplies. Harriet devoted himself to learning the ongoing Korean language. He also taught manual and one cheese English since they knew very few words in hopes that they could become translators meanwhile white painted portraits and scenes of the local tribespeople to give an accurate depiction of their way of life. The organs were not a nomadic tribe. They lived in and settled villages with upwards of two hundred people they would hunt fish and gather provision like roots not send shellfish and while the Europeans struggled to grow grains the Gone Koreans had bountiful harvests of beans pumpkins corn even tobacco. Harriet took a special interest. In the tobacco leaf in its connection to the Algonquin religion. It allegedly connected them to their higher powers. Like the Puritan colonists the Algonquin believed in the mortality of the soul. Heaven and Hell perhaps. The two groups weren't so different after all but Harriet and white were more fascinated by how religion and politics overlapped in L. Korean tradition concepts like Heaven and Hell were allegedly heavily incorporated into their political system and now Harriet and white were curious to find out whether the Algonquin population could be manipulated in the Englishman's favour during this time it was common for native American chiefs to control an average of seven different villages. Which meant they had thousands of people under their leadership. The colonists eventually came to the unsettling reality that the local tribes were capable of gathering upwards of eight hundred men if they wanted to retaliate against the English but the Elgon Koreans now had their own set of concerns and those concerns were starting to affect internal relations amongst the tribe the Elgon Queen villages that came into contact with the settlers. Were starting to build an advantage over the other communities the villages were supposed to be equals but instead the tribes with the English goods were using it as an upper hand on the rest of the community by controlling the distribution of European goods through trade. This force the Elgon Queens to question whether they should continue a relationship with the English at all many of the Elgon tribes in the region were reportedly split over this issue. Alliances began to form. The ongoing system of justice was to find a balance between all parties in order to maintain peace amongst its people by any means necessary. If one tribesman did something wrong his entire tribe would also be held responsible. Oftentimes a punishment for a crime was brought justice by the same action and eye for an eye but the English had a different outlook to them. Gaining power was more important than gaining justice balance these or harmony even on lands that weren't their own and after nine months on the island. The Englishman tally began to fester. The colonists didn't care that the Elgon Koreans had saved their lives and fed them when they were starving. They were only concerned with their own wellbeing and didn't bat an eye when they saw them suffering and they certainly didn't come to the rescue when disease started to infect the local tribes by the fifteen hundreds millions of Europeans had died from smallpox plague and typhoid infant and child mortality was extremely high. So those who had lived past youth were now immune to the diseases so they had no idea that they brought these viruses over to America but the native Americans were now dying by the hundreds. Thanks to the colonists. It wasn't uncommon for an entire village to be wiped out after a visit from a single colonised the devastation was unfathomable so unfathomable that both the colonists and the natives saw this as an act of God but their explanations were of course. Very different to the.

"Fifteen ninety two English ships dropped anchor off the coast of Modern Day North Carolina. The Hot Sun beat down on their tired.

They signaled the location of his daughter and granddaughter. It had been almost three years since white returned home to England together. More supplies for the colony. Tomorrow he would finally be reunited with his family and the other one hundred settlers he governed. Unfortunately it was too late in the day to venture inland so they spent their final night aboard the ship celebrating they drank played trumpets and saying hoping the columnists would here when morning came white and some of his crew took rowboats through a narrow inlet that led them ashore to roanoke but as white approached the village his heart sank the fires he had seen the previous night were burning grass. The fruit trees were rotting. All of the homes completely dismantled just a stockpile weapons was left behind. Every single person was gone. It was as if the colonists vanished into thin air.

This is our first episode on the lost. Roanoke colony originally founded in fifteen eighty five was meant to be the first permanent English settlement in the United States. Until sometime around fifteen ninety when all of its inhabitants. Mysteriously disappeared this week. We'll take a look at the origins of the roanoke colony. We'll see how the first colony was originally established as a privateer in hub but after supplies ran thin and relationships with the native tribes were strained. The man returned to England. They were then replaced by families who immigrated to roanoke in fifteen eighty seven with hopes of starting a new life under the governance of John White a painter and explorer next week will explore a few theories on what could actually have happened to the Roanoke Colony. Some believe that the members of the roanoke colony may have died from unexpected disease. Famine or drought others suggest that the message pro at Toan indicates that the settlers might have assimilated with the local tribes and finally will explore the possibility that the colonists migrated north by taking a look at some mysterious stones to known as the dare stones which may be the secret to unlocking their lost history..

"roanoke" Discussed on Stuff They Don't Want You To Know Audio
"We'll even deliver the car right to your house so hit the road the easy way with route. And we're back they now just. Let's have a quick comment on there about this concept that the perhaps the colonists moved inward towards the main. The only thing I would put forward here is that food had always been an issue in the settlement. And if you're moving you know to. The mainland ended not an island that so separated from probably populations of certain mammals that are walking around And birds and other things it would make sense that they would move inland to have a better food source. The there are a lot of problems. Here the main one would be the Indigenous populations may not like that very much to their encroaching in that way. But we'll let's get into all this stuff because it really is conceivable overall that the colonists cadet a much less violent fate than maybe you would you would think you know having their stuff gone in just disappearing because the first thing winging at least I think of is Oh something most foul occurred here but perhaps that's not the case right. The JAMESTOWN colonist us when they when they conducted that search sixteen hundreds. They sent out a couple of different parties to hunt down members of the lost colony and it became came a common thing standard operating procedure for them to question any members of native communities when they make contact. It was one of the things they always ask them about. You know what I mean. How's the weather thaw out fishing? Go fishing good. Have you seen any people who look like us. And if so. What's what's their deal? We're paraphrasing some of the people that these colonists talked to said there are settlements further down the coast with people who look like you. They have two storey thatched roof houses. That look like You know from the descriptions Europeans would think well that sounds like the kind of stuff stuff we would build and then other groups told of nearby tribes that could read English and dressed in similar method manner to Europeans opinions. The most I think the most dramatic report in the record is the story that someone cited a child child who is dressed in the manner of a native group and this child had blond hair and was fair skinned. So they've thought maybe maybe something terrible happens like maybe a disease or some sort of natural disaster and that dude due to that the surviving members of the colony were adopted or simulated into a native population. I WANNA pause while we're like native populations so the island is Kroto in the community is Croton Croton. Yeah Yeah Okay. So that's that if you hear if you hear us Doing some word juggling if you hear me doing that. It's just my my mind's playing tricks on me any of you. If you hear me say Croatian is just because I'm wrong uh-huh still we don't know we have to hold out for that theory so this this mention of assimilation from European survivors evers into a native. American community has doubtlessly Doubtlessly had a ring of familiarity to some of our fellow listeners. And if you're from the area from North Carolina then you're very familiar with what we're about to say which is of course the story of the Lombi L. U. N. B. Not these reports from from the early days of the Jamestown investigations to the modern day to corroborate for operate. One of the most popular theories about what became of these colonists that they assimilated into these tribes and the idea is that over the course of multiple alterable generations. Intermarriage between these groups would produce a A different distinct group that had elements from both communities and this group is called the lumpy tribe by people. Who believe this this theory? The Lombi tribe tribe is native to North Carolina but according to the stories. No one can really Pin down their origin. And you can see A A number of different theories about their origin with varying degrees of credibility. But they have an oral history right. Yeah owning that oral history actually links them to roanoke settlers or at least two aspects of those settlers so That oral tradition supported by some of the surnames within the tribe which is really interesting and it's it was the tribe itself was unique because several of the members is a lot the members could speak English and And then again we're talking about the surnames. We you look at the family names of some of the roanoke colonists you've got people like Hyatt Taylor dial the Lombi tribe members air at least members of the Lombi tribe shared these names as early as the seventeen eighteen hundreds. I think seventeen nineteen is the first date that we're aware of their and other settlers. Who would come through? Make their way you know the in in interact with these tribes. They would you know they would be pretty astonished that these groups of people had gray eyes several times they would speak English and there is even It's really interesting because even if you're if you're talking to members within the group of reports from members is within the Lombi tribe who they cannot come to a full conclusion on whether or not there is a true link to the roanoke colonists right. That's correct. Yeah it's it's going to be called this thing. It's been called the Lombi connection inches. I love that as the title of something you know to Colombian connection to the sequel to the French connection. I'm not sure yeah. It's it remains intriguing because if that is if it is true there are sand and to this theory than the roanoke colonists aren't lost. Their genes are still around today in Robeson County North Carolina. And if you are listening you are a member of a group like this Lombi or related communities of which there several We would love to know your take on this especially with the advent of DNA testing which Dramatically changed the conversation around the origin origin of the Malaysian community. There's another Set of theories which says that the roanoke settlers fell victim not to native American Erkin community but to the Spanish empire because the Spanish had a settlement. Just down the coast in Florida right and we know that the Spanish forces in the West indies. Were aware that were English. Colonists around they were happy about it but they knew he he. Yeah exactly. There's actually a tale here that was told by Darby Gland G. Land this was a roanoke settler. Her he left the fifteen eighty seven expedition. After it set ashore in Puerto Rico to take on supplies. Hi so they were GonNa stop in Puerto Rico. Pick up supplies. He later reported That he told Spanish officials there when he was making this transaction. Puerto Rico about the roanoke settlement. Exactly where it was almost as in an act of espionage. So that's the thing right when we talk like about we when we talk about the bad record keeping Astute listeners will notice that we also pointed out John White was professional cartographer. So why would a professional map maker do such a piss poor job of You know mapping things it probably probably was not because of incompetence it was more likely that this this vagueness was a matter of state. Security So so that the empire couldn't find out you know the Spanish Empire Forces couldn't find out about the colony and then attack it before war. The British could send someone over across the ocean. It really does make you game out the whole scenario when you think about it in that light. Yeah as as a counter intelligence. Act of cartography counterintelligence cartography. That's a new. I think that's good. I like it man. That's crazy because what if what if it was never located there ever only all night on that island or you know also wanted to say the the idea of a a renegade cartographer you. Oh you is fantastic Mr white renegade cartographer. Yes it's gone rogue. There are other theories theories that the colonists were innocent bystanders in a entering in meteorologists into a greater conflict between rival arrival native communities. There's anthropologist John Hopkins University named Lee Miller who says the colonists wandered into a violent shift of the balance of power amongst the tribes that lived inland because roanoke is geographically located in the crux of what was at the time intense sociopolitical friction between two groups. There was the one who were you know. Had Dominion over roanoke. There's another group that shower no who controlled the waterways that were nearby and again you know not native speakers so we're not intentionally mispronouncing the names natives that the colonists were friendly with began to lose control over the area and native communities that were hostile to the settlers again with pretty good reason to be They took over air. They gain more control. So before the Jamestown colonists arrive or maybe right around the same time either around the same time or right before the Poyton had attacked and destroyed the Chesapeake Bay. That's been that tribe. Is The power Tan Poyton. That sounds familiar to me. Yeah it should that is where That is where the famous pocahontas is from. Oh Yeah it's it's not all paint with painting with all the colors of the wind yet. They they very much wanted to kill the the chesapeake so relationships hips between the English colonists in the power and were. Let's say cold shirt but even then even with that the English forces were able to get a little bit of information about what happened to the roanoke colony or they were able to learn something who knows it was true if the roanoke colonists had gone inland in the midst of this conflict then the men would have been killed the women and children probably would have been captured as slaves and if they have been captured as slaves they would have been traded along Some established brutes that span the US Coast from Virginia to Georgia. And this this is important because if we look at the time line the idea would be that the somewhere in the intervening years the roanoke colonists assimilate to another tribe but then that tribe is attacked when that tribe is attacked. The attacking tribe doesn't care if the people look kinda different. You know what I mean. It's rules of war at that point. Geez will so those are some of the big theories right and and with As those theories were being generated and As they continued you know for decades and centuries People all in the more modern day have been trying to you know prove that one of these is true right or at least disprove. A few of these were were Scientific Ryan. TYPIC- method this thing. You guys and you know despite over a century of going on that island digging all over the place trying to find some remnant of the colony they would show us some tiny clue little flashlight in the dark. That would show us this picture here. We have really found nothing right now. In the nineteen nineties archaeologists working for the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation in Virginia thousand. What they're pretty sure is a workshop from the fifteen eighty five expedition? Ezra guy named Joakim gones had tested rocks for precious metals. Other people at the workshop studied plants To figure out their properties they studied tobacco. Things like that. How can we make money off this? What can be used for? Guns is interesting because he was a Bohemian mining. Expert expert is the first recorded Jewish person in colonial America and also the first Bohemian in colonial. Neil America this. This workshop looked a lot like an alchemist outfit You Know Al Fitr Establishment. Oh sure they found crucibles you know oh crucibles right. Classic last out Chemical Paraphernalia. Yeah exactly Pharmaceutical let's call them jars ars Glassware littered all across the floor..

What is Landscape Architecture?
"Studying landscape architecture. Is that right yeah. That's right what appeals to you about landscape architecture yeah no. I think something that appeals to me about landscape architecture is really the broad range of possibilities that come with it so i guess you could say architectures focus focus primarily on the building and landscape. It's everything outside of that in so that encompasses a lot of different types of spaces and a lot of scale space some really interested in more of the social aspect or like public spaces within the urban city. That's kind of what drew me to study landscape and under god. I was always focused on like thinking about the community people that lived around public spaces or in buildings that we we were designing for and i was really interested in thinking about okay how do people move throughout space or where do they interact and kind of like what are big places places or opportunities to engage communities more and give them access to green space clean air and other opportunities for like socialization shen yeah i think when most people think about landscape architecture they're thinking mostly about greenspan. Yeah parks up things things of that nature. I know here in atlanta. There's we have so many little just pocket parks in a way like little parks just kind of tucked in here and there i think right but now there's a proposal to build sort of part of a park over our highway over one of the highway but what are some of the other sorts of things that make up landscape architecture aside from that yeah. That's a good point. I think it's easiest to describe people like oh you know like park designed but they're actually a lot of different other types of the public spaces plazas one of the most famous places that a lot of people recognize is like the hotline so also thinking about post industrial uses uh spaces there also a lot of power and landscape where we can. We have a lot of control over sustainability so we can impact the environment in a positive way way. There are a lot of initiatives happening right now. New york to kind of protect the city against sea level rise so there are a lot of constructions happening along the the coast and we're seeing that development happened so there's a wide scale to thinking about design both on a regional scale but also they're smaller like hard scape plans and thinking about outdoor malls plazas and transportation kinda gets <unk> looped into that as well. How does transportation you looked into that yeah. I guess that is a big statement but i think now that people are kind of thinking about the future of like driverless cars i <hes> now we're thinking about how we can retake over the street for pedestrians or like. Maybe we will need as many spaces for car so i think there's a a lot of pedestrian centered ideas about read configuring street spaces or like what happens if we take away highways from you we know communities can be transformed those spaces into other types of recreational use or ecological use. I think to bypass a really big and thinking get about circulation so how do people move throughout spaces that can be both through cars <hes> through highlights through aeroplanes but also at the ground sound level like walking or biking dot space so those are factors. I think that a lot of designers try to influence into their designs but also could be it's like the highland is a completely new way of kind of moving throughout new york city so really you're. You're kind of like you have the opportunity to design on a bunch of different types of scales it sounds you can do something really small like a plaza or yeah ab- santa park but even apart can range in size from really small to like central park or something the yeah it's funny said positive because <hes> i guess for our first semester design school we had a design like from the smallest scale so like a courtyard yard and it was like teeny like enclosed space but it was really fun of what we can come up with and there were so many different ideas and it was kind of our first project and and then we ramped up in scale and thinking about boston's city hall plaza in that was like seven and a half acres and thinking about okay like this is a hard scape space like we weren't allowed to use like lawns or anything like that like it's completely like thinking about people moving freely and it had to be accessible supposed to boston's like governmental building and then our final design was ramped up in scale again and it was thinking about like waterfront design and interaction between the city city and also like recreational space say yeah. It's definitely a wide range of scales that you can design and everything in between. I'm glad you mentioned accessibility accessibility. That's been something that's been on my mind lately mostly in the web space and i'll bring this back landscape architecture so just just what would be your. I was reading this article this morning about how <hes> domino's pizza is trying to take a case all the way to the supreme court art because a customer suing them because their websites not accessible to not able to access it on a screen reader and there has been other types of lawsuits that are like this. I think there were people that were trying to sue beyond say because her website was not accessible and granted the web guidelines around accessibility normally normally tend to pertain to government sites in terms of enforceability beyond say side is not a government site. Neither domino's pizza however what i found is in the weapons that accessibility the is kind of a it's a slippery scale. Some people really adhere to others. Don't care about it at all but when it comes to landscape architecture accessibility is super important because all types of people have to move throughout spaces yeah. How do you design for physical accessibility yeah. No that's a good question and i think it varies in the designer what you're trying to achieve and some people are very much like oh. We don't want this to be accessed by like massive amounts of people like it could be very dangerous address. It could pose threats large gatherings but i think to like the more practical answers. Oh like in designing public spaces. There are laws and codes like a._d._a. Accessibility laws that you have to buy four but it's also like okay now you can accept those code standards or like how do you truly remake space open and then it raises more questions about like who is allowed in what spaces in who isn't so that got really interesting and especially in terms of the plaza plaza and how do you make a space feel comfortable for maybe a single person who's walking there or in their wheelchair and then also can the space <unk> accommodate like large art gatherings of protests like does the public have a right you know to gather and protests and speak in kind of connected large groups yeah. I don't know if that answers your question. No this is my question. It also made me think a little bit about sorta this concept that i've heard of with defensive design where sometimes certain public spaces like you say designed to keep people out yeah like for example park benches that may have a middle railing so no one can lay across them or four. Maybe low to the ground services. They'll put like little bumps or spikes on them so no one can sit comfortably on it. Yes what it reminded me that that definitely light comes up a lot in designed to in. It's like then. It gets extremely political suicide in like yeah okay. I'm just wondering design like this nice space that maybe people could have like a lunch break oregon but then i think too in the era of like public safety and security people get really like nervous about okay like who sitting sitting and lingering in these spaces and yeah. It's a fine line but i think it's also kind of exciting because you're giving a space where you would not you don't necessarily know what will happen like an park and prospect park in brooklyn. It's like a wonderful space. When i go there. I see people by gang doing tai not doing yoga with their dogs and like there's not a set like programmed area for that to happen. It kind of just is able to happen and there are like political local statements that also happened there so i think it's an exciting platform to be able to design kind of within that one thing when you when you sort of talk about spaces like this i'm thinking of how a few years ago there were a lot of public protests in the streets blocking highways and and blocking major thoroughfares thoroughfares and things like that and i know like here in atlanta for example there was a big complaints that people could walk down onto the highway. Yeah they're like oh. Why is that. Why is that possible which doesn't make sense like why wouldn't they you can drive down there. You walk down there but no it's interesting about the the sort of governance of different spaces for different types of people or even different modes of transportation. There's more that i want to dive into with the topic but i want to take it back a little bit. I'm really curious to know about more about you and how you came to be studying at harvard talking about all this stuff so where did you. Where'd you grow up yeah definitely so i was born in new jersey but i grew up my whole life and south west virginia. A little town called roanoke doc. Anybody knows it and i'm the youngest of three girls and so my mom. She's a new yorker. My dad was from chicago. They're both from big city and then when they have made they decided they wanted to move down south and kind of slow things down and so i grew up in roanoke must of my life i went to school with a lot of my friends like kindergarten through high school and even some in college. I think it was a good community where everyone was really well connected. It and everyone knew each other and so grown up in a place like that was really unique as i'm learning and then i went off to school to study architecture at the university of virginia i think tau i got there was like not a linear path at all listening like oh. How did you have it figured out yet was curious. Here is like has designed been like a big part of your childhood growing up where you're surrounded by it. Yeah i think one since i was surrounded by it i didn't really realized that until later and now like looking back. I was like oh <hes> my parents did a good job at like teaching me how to do this or that and so oh my dad did many things that he also briefly worked in furniture procurement in my mom went to fashion school for a little bit and then decided that wasn't for her but they in my grandma on my mom's side like always painted and drew and so my parents were good at like exposing me to the arts very early but i didn't realize what's that there were possible careers through design until high school and so i kind of was always interested in drawing and painting in but it was kind of like something i did just for fun and then i thought i wanted to be a doctor. I thought that was like what is going to do and i very it. Quickly realized like i don't like hospitals. I'm very scared of blood in bali fluids and so then i said oh my goodness like what am i gonna do. Who i think was like fourteen. I was like man. I just don't know what i'm going to study and my dad actually said what about architecture and then at that time i had no. I know i dea what that field was an. I was like what is this and <hes> in high school. I got to go to a couple of design camps at <hes> virginia ginny tech university. What was other school. I went to another school north carolina state university and they had like the summer design her rams that my dad found his co. You you should go in and you can kind of test and see if he liked it and so at first it was just such a different way of thinking and i was not really excited about it <hes> but then i went on to study it in college and it was very hard at first has a lot of people seal when i studied architecture but <hes> no now it turned out to be really amazing from people who have had on the show we've had a couple of of architects on before and they have always talked about i mean the difficulty of i think just yes of course learning about the subject matter but also a lot of those spaces are not super diverse and so if you're coming in there as quote unquote the other and that sort of just adds an element to the difficulty of studying and being a space like that yeah absolutely so no one in my immediate any family or anyone i knew of really studied architecture and so that was a whole new learning environment for me. I went to school in a lot of people the parents had studied architecture like they're punctual and so they were kind of already looped in the field and yeah it was very hard to understand the language <hes> just even what architecture it was <hes> it was a difficult amount of learning that you have to do a friend like learning the software but also a lot of technical skills that you need to choir but overall though what was your time at university of virginia yeah i think overall the wall. It was really great. 'cause then my first year the kind of restarted i think as my first year right before i got they restarted their no muss chapter. I know ma says the national organization

Hey, brain stuff. Lauren Bogle bond here. An unsolved mystery can drive people crazy and the fate of the first English settlers ever to establish a colony in the new world ruin oak is a puzzle that will probably never be entirely solved. But it doesn't keep people from trying in July. Fifteen eighty seven a ship carrying ninety men. Seventeen women and eleven children landed on Roanoke island on the Outer Banks of modern day North Carolina a year before when these site was discovered. Fifteen men had volunteered to stay and hold down the proverbial fort, but they were nowhere to be found. So the one hundred and eighteen colonists disembarked and said about carbon colony out of the wilderness. There's much excitement when Eleanor dare the daughter of leader John White gave birth to the first English baby. Born in the new world and named her Virginia after time John White left, the settlers to return to England telling them he'd be back within the year with fresh supplies. However, England's war with Spain slowed the process considerably, and nobody was able to check on the settlement again. Until fifteen ninety when white returned his daughter granddaughter and everyone else was gone. They had dismantled the buildings carved the word Kroto in into a tree. The name of the friendly native American tribe on a nearby island and vanished. There was no sign of the cross white had told them to carve on a tree if they had left under duress. A frankly white didn't look very hard for his daughter and granddaughter before heading back to England for centuries. The story of the lost colony of Roanoke seemed pretty cut and dried to most historians. The settlers went to live with a Kroto and tribe. Whether they stayed there not nobody could say the thing they could say is that no definitive sign of any of the one hundred eighteen colonists was ever found despite rumors in the later established Jamestown colony of massacres and men wearing European clothes deep in the wilderness. No definitive sign that is until more than three centuries later when in nineteen thirty seven a produce dealer from California named L E Helmand showed up at Emory University in Atlanta with a stone. He found while hunting hickory nuts and recently cleared, North Carolina swamp, some fifty miles or eighty kilometers inland of Roanoke island. It was inscribed with a message. He wanted the experts at Emory to decipher turns out, the carved stone told story allegedly written by whites daughter Eleanor. The colonists. Endured two years of only misery and war after her father left for England ending with half. The settlers killed in armed combat and many of the others, including eleanor's husband daughter, slaughtered when a spiritual leader of the tribe. They lived with warned that the presence of the English. Settlers was angering the spirits, according to the stone only six men and one woman escaped. The stone was found to be offended by the experts at the time. It seems legitimate and better still it satisfied. Everyone's thirst foreclosure around to this dusty old riddle the story captured the imagination of the entire country and Emory professor Haywood J Pearce junior published a paper describing the stone in the refutable journal of southern history in nineteen thirty eight. But soon the plausibility of the stone came into question, we spoke with John Bence archivist at the rose library at Emory University. He said Emory became suspicious of Hammond after some professors and administrators traveled with him to Eden to North Carolina where he found the stone. The search for the original location of the stone was fruitless this attitude. The growing list of details about Hammond's discovery that we're hard to corroborate Emory had someone in California look into Hammond, but couldn't find much more than an address after Pierce and his father another academic paid him. And for the first stone and offered a five hundred dollar reward for any additional stones people might find. You can imagine.

He brought them these stones had Eleanor marrying a Cherokee chief giving birth to another daughter named Agnes and eventually dying in a cave in Georgia. In April of nineteen forty one these Saturday Evening Post ran an expose on. The dare stones dismissing them all as forgeries citing an acronym. Stick language, and consistency of spelling that was unheard of at the time the Pierce's career suffered and the dare stones were stuffed in a basement at the father's university an embarrassment to everyone involved, but every so often academic interest turns again to the show on Riverstone. The original dare stone found by him. And in that North Carolina swamp, it's made of different rock than the others. A bright white quartzite interior and dark exterior that would have made a good choice for Eleanor dares missive to her father and in the nineteen thirties. The patina on the stone would have been difficult to chemically replicate. In addition. It doesn't contain the anachronistic language of the other stones some experts have determined. The only problem might be an Eleanor dares. Sign off the initials e WD, which would not have been typical signature in these sixth century.

An Investigation Into The Opioid Epidemic
"Chang journalists Beth Macy covered every facet of the opioid crisis as a reporter for the Roanoke times in Virginia She embedded with, addicts trying to get clean she followed families grieving after overdose deaths interviewed heroin dealer sifted. Through drug studies in court documents and now she's written a book based on that reporting, it's called dope sick in which she attempts to capture the sheer scale of the crisis we have lost three hundred thousand Americans in. The last fifteen years to drug overdose deaths and, we're going to lose that many and just the. Next five Macy traces the root of the current epidemic to the mid nineties that's one Purdue pharma debut the blockbuster drug Oxycontin which was aggressively marketed as an addiction free painkiller. It was the strongest, version of an opioid painkiller that had ever hit the market and because it was a twelve hour time release doctors were told that this is absolutely safe and patients. Were told this is absolutely. Say that addiction is quote, exquisitely, rare, as one Purdue officials said that turned out to be hollow promise as Macy's on her reporting Dependence on Oxycontin and other. Painkillers laid the, foundation for the current heroine epidemic, she begins her story with a teenager named, Jesse who made the jump from pills to heroin and, didn't make it out alive because wanting these rambunctious kids who rarely napped as a little. Boy he would fall asleep with toy still in his hands and early on they put, him on ADHD medication he also had some football and snowboarding injuries when he was fifteen and sixteen and was prescribed opioid painkillers then. His mother isn't exactly sure at what point he, became hooked at what point he realized he was. Dope sick but he knew he could trade his ADHD medicine for the opioid pills and one thing led to another when the pills got harder to get because of doctors cracking. Down on prescribing that's, when the heroine started coming in his mother Christy she asked you she said she wanted to know how he got to that place and that becomes Sort of your books underlying question how do you try to answer, a question like that well I just tried to listen to her in. Here what her concerns were I. Mean she asked me to go interview the drug dealer who had landed in her town a few months, before jesse's death and who had. Increased the supply of heroin in that town but our main question was how is, my gorgeous handsome charismatic son nineteen years old never missed a day of. Work even up until the moment he died had missed a day of work how does he end up overdosed. On someone else's bathroom floor and she says I. Thought, it was just. Pills and, I heard that over and over she thought it was, quote just pills What's compelling about this book is, you come at it from all sides, you spend hours with a drug. Dealer named Ronnie Jones who ran one of the largest heroin? Rings in the, mid Atlantic region how did you, coax Ronnie to open up to you. About why he did what, he did You have, a story, to tell to and I also interviewed, his brother who was a. Very successful rap recording artist and producer and you know. He had tried so many times to help Ronnie when he would get out of prison and jail from his former, incarceration stints and Ronnie just could never. He you know having this early felon on his record he can never go legit he tells me he tried to over and. Over again he tried to start his own business in this little town that he landed in to work in the chicken plant and no one would rent, to him. And he also is not quite willing to, take responsibility for the dust that his supply may have eventually caused. In that community that's what struck me when I. Was reading the section about Ronnie because he kind of rationalized his business. As providing a service that he was offering heroin discount price he was saving people that trip to Baltimore which which would be. Much more dangerous to be much more dangerous it was like he was doing something of value To the community is the way he looked at it he. Said my hair on doesn't have federal in it You know he was. Kind of proud of that but Ronnie story illustrates how. Little we do for felons trying to reenter our society we don't make it. Easy for them, to get, jobs they often come out and they only fines and he tries. To go, legit he ends up, you know he starts out selling weed again which he had been selling before but meanwhile, since, he's. Been imprisoned this opioid thing has exploded, and somebody tells him in the break room. Of Georgia's chicken hey man if you wanna make the real money you need to be bringing heroin in. Connection he starts bringing in it in bulk in, from Harlem. And overnight as as the prosecutors, still the story I think there's a little more, nuance than. This but overnight they say the town of Woodstock Virginia goes from having a? Handful of heroin? Users. Thomas hundreds what do you make of the federal government's response to the crisis so far under this administration yeah so President. Trump said he was going to declare a national emergency And several months ago he declared, something that sounded like a. National emergency but was actually a public health emergency which. Released no new funds are no new with authority and again with one hundred. And forty five, people a, day dying of this we need to as one person in the. Book says, with Zico we sent, helicopters we need to send helicopters and what I believe we need is more across the, board, access. To medication assisted treatment and which study, after study shows is the best way to. Help somebody with opioid use disorder prevent an overdose death and I realize there was so much disagreement about. What the what treatments should be I mean you, talk about. Buprenorphine for example which is an, opioid itself and how it could be effectively incorporated, into treatment. Programs but there's a lot of resistance to that why is that most of? The treatment centers? In. America believe in abstinence only care all the people that I was Following on the. Ground in Roanoke Virginia and elsewhere including Jesse my football player up in the Woodstock area they were all being sent. At great expense to their families to these very expensive abstinence only centers and when they get, out they're opioid naive, because they haven't been taking it and then when they relapse which most of them. Do that's, when they're the most, vulnerable to, overdose and die are you worried that the public and maybe even policymakers are reaching. A point of fatigue when it comes to. Stories about opiates the way the public has reached a, point of the, teak about the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan I have to tell you I reached a point of. Fifty myself I, put a Google alert. On opioid epidemic when. I, first started working on this book, almost three years, ago and, there were so many articles I couldn't even. Read them all I mean there are scores of articles every day but they each of them only. Deal with a little piece of something going on right now and my goal. With this book was not, to just show you how, we got here and what it's gonna take to get. Out of it but also to inspire people to care and I really hope that that's what I've done that Macy is author of the new book dope sick thank you very very much joining us thank you so much also
