Our history is full of unsolved mysteries that have somehow stood the test of time and are still relevant today. The same history contains millions of unsung heroes, deeds of valor, and wonders who aren’t of this world no more. As a species, we take great pride in our intelligence and our ability to solve even the toughest riddles we discover.
Regardless of how far we’ve come, and how much knowledgeable we are now compared to how we were just a few centuries ago, there are still plenty mysteries we haven’t yet unraveled. Here is a list of ten of the greatest mysteries that are unsolved to this day.
Established during the late 16th century, Roanoke Colony was an attempt by the British to colonize as much of North America as possible. As soon as it was established, the colony ran into troubles. At first, blaming a native village for a theft, they raided it and burned it to the ground. After the expedition leader had to return to England to get more supplies, the colony got abandoned by its inhabitants rather quickly. During the second expedition, all members of the colony simply disappeared, with no trace or explanation left behind.
