Fort James Archaeological Dig
The Jamestown Archaeological Dig at James Fort is one of the top archaeology sites in America. The Jamestown Rediscovery site states "The project has rewritten our understanding of early settlers’ daily life and purpose and their relations with Indian peoples. The research project continues to bring to life a narrative of human endeavor and perseverance that laid the foundations of British America and, ultimately, the United States." The story was incredible and the tour is highly recommended.
Fort James was thought to be lost at sea. If you have taken the James Fort tour prior to 1994 that is what you would have been told that it was lost to sea because of the receding shore line. Well it was not.
If you get a chance to read through their website the story is incredible and constantly changing as they find new discoveries. It was a very rough start and the colony need multiple groups of people to replace those that died. We thoroughly enjoy our tour and walking the grounds.
