Fascinating article about Roanoke
Bar Harbor

Everyone's heard the story of the Lost Colony of Roanoke. But a new work of research, going back and looking at the primary documentation, comes up with a very different story indeed. Perhaps they were not so much "lost" as "sabotaged by Sir Francis Walsingham". Nifty theory, and reasonably plausible.
