    The Roanoke Colony | Episode 26 | Simply Strange

    In March of 1584, Sir Walter Raleigh was awarded a charter by the Queen. His instructions were to discover, hold, and occupy the new lands to the west - this was to be the first permanent English settlement in North America.

His colonists struggled with poor weather, disease, lack of supplies, and strained relationships with local Native American tribes. His colony was doomed to fail, but no one knows exactly why.
