AMERICA BEFORE COLUMBUS The population figures for indigenous peoples in the Americas before the 1492 voyage of Christopher Columbus have proven difficult to establish. Scholars rely on archaeological data and written records from settlers from Europe. Most scholars writing at the end of the 19th century estimated that the pre-Columbian population was as low as 10 million; by the end of the 20th century most scholars gravitated to a middle estimate of around 50 million, with some historians arguing for an estimate of 100 million or more. While it is difficult to determine exactly how many Natives lived in North America before Columbus, estimates range from a low of 2.1 million to 7 million people to a high of 18 million.

Heinrich Schliemann (German pronunciation: [ˈʃliːman]; (January 6, 1822, Neubukow, Mecklenburg-Schwerin -- December 26, 1890, Naples) was a German businessman and archaeologist, and an advocate of the historical reality of places mentioned in the works of Homer. Schliemann was an important archaeological excavator of Troy, along with the Mycenaean sites Mycenae and Tiryns. His successes lent material weight to the idea that Homer's Iliad and Virgil's Aeneid reflect actual historical events.
"The foreign countries (ie. Sea Peoples) made a conspiracy in their islands. All at once the lands were removed and scattered in the fray. No land could stand before their arms: from Hatti, Qode, Carchemish, Arzawa and Alashiya on, being cut off [ie. destroyed] at one time. A camp was set up in Amurru. They desolated its people, and its land was like that which has never come into being. They were coming forward toward Egypt, while the flame was prepared before them. Their confederation was the Peleset, Tjeker, Shekelesh, Denyen and Weshesh, lands united. They laid their hands upon the land as far as the circuit of the earth, their hearts confident and trusting: 'Our plans will succeed!' " http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sea_Peoples

What happened to the Colony of Roanoke? Why did they vanish so mysteriously, with literally no sign of what happened or where they went? The Roanoke Colony was established in 1585 in what known today as Dare County, North Carolina. Founded by Sir Walter Raleigh, it was one of England's first attempts at settlement in North America. Made up of 115 people, the colony was led by John White, an artist and friend of Raleigh's. The colony quickly realized they did not have nearly enough supplies for survival and a successful settlement. John White would end up sailing back to England, where it would be three years before his return due to England's war with Spain. Upon his return in 1590, White found the settlement deserted. No sign of the 90 men, 17 women, and 11 children who were set to begin a new life there. Over the years, there have been numerous possible explanations. One theory is that the settlers were attacked and killed by Native Americans. The settlers quickly began to make trouble with the Natives, due to issues that came about dealing with trading. Both the settlers, and the natives would end up in numerous tense situations, both sides would kill members of the other, including raids on the other sides encampments, regardless of how small the provocation was. Another possibility is that they moved, likely to what was known then as Croatoan Island. White and his men were unable to search the island to confirm this theory. However, the word "Croatoan" was carved into a tree, meaning it was possibly a sign of where they went, left by a settler. The last widely accepted possibility is that the colonists integrated with Native American's. Not all tribes were hostile towards the settlers. To this day, there are people of Native descent in the area that have various non Native features, such as blue eyes or light skin.
