"This is Done by Their Women": The Women of Early Jamestown
Saturday, March 23 2013 at 11:00 AM - 3:00 PM
Meet two of Jamestown Island's earliest female residents and learn about the lives and experiences of these women, a Powhatan Indian and an English settler, during this drop-in program at the Nathalie P. and Alan M. Voorhees Archaearium at Historic Jamestowne.

The women share their views of daily life, work and relationships as well as their perspectives of the worlds in which they lived. Guests can interact with Melanie Hagan, a veteran interpreter of the Algonquian Chesapeake, who will share her historical perspective of Virginia's earliest inhabitants. Guests also meet Rachel Stanton, who arrived in Virginia in 1608 with high hopes of success and even higher expectations in the New World.
