Hi Sheltie, I was wondering if somewhere on the thread that 'Roanoke' would be mentioned... after all it is one of the 'real-life-mystery-genre's' preeminent cases and therefore well worthy of a $ to solve. Being a more civilized kind of person in being of English origin,.. ...unlike your good self I did not here about this splendid mystery in any history class at school. But instead I had to find it for myself in one of those brilliant magazines that I used to spend my pocket money on in those days. And to say that I found it an interesting case would be an understatement. And so of course just like any likeminded lad that had a great penchant for 'the unusual' I was greedy for more information on the mystery and whenever I saw the name Roanoke in any publishing, I had to have it. But of course however the case is presented, the basic question still has not been definitively answered and all that any of us have is conjecture. And from my own personal standpoint, I find the more sensational suggestions a mind-compelling exercise in possibilities? ... I cannot argue with anything that this guy proposes in this article ..... What Really Happened To Roanoke History Essay ... And also as you probably know there have been a number of similar mysteries that wreak with the same smell of fascination such as The Village Of Hoer Verde case from 1923 and The Anjikuni Lake Incident from 1930. What do you suppose happened at Roanoke Sheltie? ... and what about the two that I mentioned? Cheers Buddy.
