Lee Miller talked about the mystery surrounding the first colonial expedition to the United States in 1587. Ms. Miller talked about her drive to find out what happened to the 155 colonists who landed on Roanoke Island off the coast of North Carolina and later disappeared. Since their disappearance, historians surmised they were killed by the Powhatan Indians of Virginia. Through her research, Ms. Miller believes there was evidence after the colonists disappeared that their fate was known, although British and Jamestown, Virginia, officials stated the colonists whereabouts were unknown. Ms. Miller also suggested corruption in Queen Elizabeth’s government, including spy rings, an attempted murder, mutiny, and a cover-up effort. Ms. Miller answered questions from members of the audience.

Lee Miller is the author of Roanoke: Solving the Mystery of the Lost Colony, published by Arcade Publishing.  close
