It’s said that what is famously known as the “Lost colony” of Roanoke Island in present day North Carolina, was the first colony of English settlers in America.

The Virginian-Pilot originally broke the story over the weekend, where they say that archaeologists found a clue in pieces of a medicine jar that might have belonged to a member of the lost colony and the Roanoke voyages.
