In Search of the Lost Colony

Archaeologists just won't give up. New plans are afoot to "scour" Roanoke Sound in search of clues to the fate of the Lost Colony.

Experts hope that new technology will uncover evidence of 16th century "English activity" in the Sound. The US$15,000 project, funded by the non profit First Colony Foundation, is the first of a series of attempts planned to discover artifacts dating to the 1584-87 Roanoke Voyages.
