1584
Walter Raleigh funds an expeditionary voyage from Plymouth to
America to investigate whether it would be possible to set up a
colony.
1585
The company lands in America and spends the next month
searching for a suitable place to establish a settlement.
A colony is established on Roanoke Island. Ralph Lane is made
Governor.
1585
Summer - Relations with the Amerindians (NA group) are good
and the settlers receive a lot of help from them.
Winter - Relations with the Amerindians start to deteriorate. The
Amerindians no longer help supply the colony with food and the
settlement is attacked.
1587
1590
Nobody knows what happened to the colony after this date.
At Roanoke, the party finds the word CROATOAN carved on a
tree. Governor White decides that the settlers must have moved
to Croatoan. He also decides that they must not have been in
any danger as there was no cross carved near the name - the
sign that White had agreed with the settlers before he left.

"...the Spanish travelled all over the southern
and western halves of North America looking
for it. On their travels they encountered many
Indian tribes who were given the opportunity to
convert to Christianity or be put to death as
heretics. You see, the Spanish were not just
after gold, they were also in the New World to
spread the Catholic faith. So, any Indian tribe
which rejected the Catholic faith was either
killed or forced into slavery. It was a very brutal
business but the Spanish were perfectly willing
to commit extreme acts of violence and even
genocide in the name of religion and in their
quest for gold."
