Alum Luke Pecoraro and the Lost Colony of Ronoke

Do take a look at BU Today where there is a feature story on the work of the First Colony Foundation that is searching for the 1587 Roanoke “Lost Colony,” along with a great interview with our own Luke Pecoraro, an Archaeology alum who earned his doctorate in 2015.  Luke is the Director of Archaeology at the Mount Vernon Estate, formerly the home of George Washington.

Luke also spends time volunteering with the First Colony Foundation, and its mysterious disappearance is the focus of the sixth season of FX’s popular anthology series American Horror Story.  Finding out the true story of the Lost Colony of Roanoke.  Click here for the story.
