The Lost Colony of Roanoke: It’s Not Cannibalism, OK?!

Spread the love

It’s almost Thanksgiving, so it’s time to get Colonial! Eat some turkey and settle in for this jumbo-sized episode on the mystery of the Lost Colony of Roanoke. For this episode, we were joined by the amazing Sarah Head and Karen Stollznow from the Archaeological Fantasies and Monster Talk podcasts, respectively. We discuss all of the possibilities of what may have happened to these colonists, from the obvious — they joined up with a local Native American tribe — to the (probably) absurd — they ate each other.
