Mystery of the Lost Colony: Solved?

Fred Willard, Director of the Lost Colony Center for Science and Research, will speak on solving one of America’s greatest historic mysteries: what happened to the colonists of Roanoke Island in 1590? Revealing secrets hidden on old maps, using satellite imaging and metal detecting, performing archeological digs, and administering a DNA project have all led to Willard’s team making some startling discoveries that may change the way we think about the “lost” colony. The big question is, “Was it ever lost?”

Co-sponsored by the NH County Puplic Library

The DNA and Genealogy Interest Group will meet at 5:30 before the program.
