The mystery of what happened to the lost colony of Roanoke Island has inspired some great fantasy writing recently – American Horror Story, Stephen King’s Storm Of The Century, Supernatural and, most recently, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.
117 people disappeared from the island of Roanoke in North Carolina in 1590 and the only clue as to what happened was the word ‘Croatoan’ carved into a tree stump. To this day, despite many theories, there is no conclusive evidence for what happened. The above shows have offered their own ideas. Spooky!
