The Lost Colony of Roanoke Island was an early attempt by English settlers to establish a permanent colony in North America and was established in 1587 on Roanoke Island, off the coast of what is now North Carolina, by Governor John White and around 120 settlers.

Shortly after arriving, Governor White returned to England to secure more supplies and support for the colony. However, due to various reasons such as a war with Spain, White was delayed in his return for three years. When he finally returned in 1590, he found the colony abandoned with no trace of its inhabitants, except for the word "Croatoan" carved into a tree.

The fate of the Lost Colony has been a subject of debate and speculation for centuries.
