Overview

Grenville and the Lost Colony of Roanoke takes an authoritative look at how the English Nation first attempted to settle America - some thirty-three years before the Mayflower set sail.

In the 1580s Sir Walter Raleigh ably assisted by his cousin Sir Richard Grenville set out to found an English Colony in America. After several voyages the colony was finally settled on the island of Roanoke, yet just three years later it had vanished and remains today, one of America's greatest mysteries.

Now, in this new account, Andrew Thomas Powell re-investigates. Using eye-witness accounts from sources never previously linked, he provides one of the most extraordinary true stories in English and American history and concludes with the current quest to find out what really happened to them.

Filled with new revelations and theories, and exposing some myths, this is the first modern attempt to use original documents to re-examine an extraordinary period in English History. Grenville and the Lost Colony of Roanoke takes an authoritative look at how the English Nation first attempted to settle America - some thirty-three years before the Mayflower set sail.
