Lost Colony Might Be Found in Their Genes

DNA tests may help solve the 420-year-old mystery of what happened to the Lost Colony on Roanoke Island.

As director of DNA research for the Lost Colony Center for Science and Research, [Roberta] Estes will manage a multidisciplinary approach to tracking roots from a "most-wanted list" of people who might have connections to the Roanoke colonists or to the 16th century American Indians - or to both.
Testing of American Indian remains or known descendants of the colonists in England might be part of future research, Estes said. [Link]
