  • Think about the film “The New World”
  • List three things in the film for each of the following:
    • Three things that you expected
    • Three things that surprised you
    • Three things you thought were stereotypical
    • Three things that were accurate for that culture region
an english colony in america1
An English Colony in America
  • Queen Elizabeth of England commissioned a second attempted colony in the New World, this time to be led by John White
john white s colonists
John White’s Colonists
  • The colonists included women and children (including White’s pregnant daughter who gave birth to the first English child born in America, Virginia Dare)
  • The colonists settled at Roanoke Island off the coast of NC
Because the colonists arrived in mid-summer, it was too late to plant crops and they did not have enough food
  • John White returned to England for supplies & was to go back to Roanoke immediately
Before he left, the colonists agreed that if the settlers moved, they would leave markings indicating where they had moved
  • If they were in danger, they would leave a cross in a place easily seen
When White arrived in England, they were at war with Spain and he was unable to return to Roanoke for three years
  • When he returned, no one was there
  • They left no personal possessions
  • The group became known
  • as “The Lost Colony”
The letters “CRO” were carved on a tree
  • The word “CROATOAN” was carved on a gatepost
  • There was no cross found
  • What happened to the colony is still a mystery today, but there are several theories
Some say the colonists may have been adopted by a local Algonquian tribe, the Hatteras
  • There is a theory that their descendents are today’s Lumbee (some of the Lost Colony’s surnames included: Berrye, Brooke, Dare, Harris, Sampson, Scot, and Sutton)
