Roanoke Puzzle

December 2023
1min read

Shortly after I read Karen Ordahl Kupperman’s “Roanoke Lost” in the August/ September 1985 issue, I read another account of the lost colony which asserts that the colonists merged with the Lumbee Indians of southeastern North Carolina. Does Kupperman classify this as another rumor, or is there perhaps some validity to the idea?

We hope you enjoy our work.
