There Are Massive Earthworks Hiding In The Small Town Of Manteo, North Carolina, And The History Is Fascinating

Everyone knows the story of the Roanoke Colony, the first English settlement in what’s now the United States. They disappeared mysteriously one day, and many people wondered if there was a supernatural explanation. Today, most people accept the theory that the struggling colonists were likely absorbed into the local indigenous tribes. Incredibly, the supposed “lost colony” has now been recreated near the town of Manteo.
