English landing on Roanoke Island, NC Office of Archives & History

Before the 1587 colony of families, an English expedition of soldiers and explorers resided for nearly a year on Roanoke Island from 1585 to 1586. These men formed England’s first New World settlement, beginning a new chapter in the course of the world.
