The show is based on events in 1587, when 117 English men, women, and children came ashore on Roanoke Island to establish a permanent English settlement in the New World. It was a venture initiated by Sir Walter Raleigh. Just three years later in 1590, when English ships returned to bring supplies, they found the island deserted with no sign of the colonists. After nearly 450 years, the mystery of what happened to the colonists remains unsolved.
