Finding Juan Pardo

Record #:
Twenty years before settlers of The Lost Colony vanished from Roanoke Island and forty years before Jamestown, Spanish explorers led by Juan Pardo built a fort in Burke County in 1567. Called Fort San Juan, it was razed by Indians in 1568. Archaeologist David Moore from Warren Wilson College is conducting excavations on the site.
