Beechland and the Lost Colony

Small Cover

In a well known story, Sir Walter Ralegh’s attempt to settle Virginia in 1587 became The Lost Colony, when 117 men, women and children simply disappeared. Significant evidence suggests that they intentionally relocated inland, continuing the alliance they had formed with the Croatan tribe, and that Ralegh, at least, kept in touch with them. Using evidence found in original accounts, native alliances, oral histories, naming patterns, archeological remnants, and reanalysis of early maps, author Philip McMullan presents his explanation of what happened to America’s elusive first English colonists.
