About the Program:

Charles R. Ewen Ph. D., professor of Anthropology, and Thomson Shields Jr., Ph. D. of English, will present, “Reconsidering the Lost Colony: What We Don’t Know and Why We Don’t Know.”

Do North Carolinians really know all the history of The Lost Colony? Though the colony lost contact with England in 1587, it did not become THE Lost Colony until the 19th century. Trying to disentangle fact from folklore has complicated research into the fate of the colonist.
