NC Museum of History exhibition ~ Mysteries of the Lost Colony
- Beginning this fall (2007), explore one of history's most astonishing unsolved mysteries in a major exhibition at the N.C. Museum of History in Raleigh. Mysteries of the Lost Colony and A New World: England's First View of America opens Oct. 20. It is presented through the collaboration with the British Museum in London, England. The exhibition will run through Jan. 13, 2008. Mysteries of the Lost Colony examines England's first attempts at a permanent settlement in America and what may have happened to the colonists at Roanoke Island. At its heart is A New World: England's First View of America, a traveling exhibition from the British Museum. This exhibition focuses on more than 70 watercolors made by John White on the voyages to Virginia (now North Carolina) in the 1580s. This is the first time in more than 40 years that the complete collection of White's original watercolors will be shown outside of England. Visit www.ncmuseumofhistory.org or call (919) 807-7900.
