History for Lunch on June 5 featuring Nicholas Luccketti

History for Lunch: In Search of Sir Walter Raleigh's Lost Colonists


Nicholas Luccketti, an archaeologist who participated in excavations at Roanoke Island and served as the co-director of the First Colony Foundation investigations that discovered Site X and Site Y, will review the previous archaeological work at Roanoke Island and the findings of excavations at Site X and Site Y. 

Since 1895, historians and archaeologists have endeavored to locate the fort and village sites of Raleigh's 1585 and 1587 colonies on Roanoke Island and, more recently, where the 1587 "lost colonists" may have re-established their settlement up the Albemarle Sound.
