The result of 20 years of research by the Jamestown Rediscovery Project is that its team is your authoritative source on the English and Virginia Indian experience in the early years of England’s first successful colony in North America.
The original site of James Fort is not just a landmark of American history. It is also offers a wealth of opportunities for educators teaching the principles of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) because archaeologists use those skills to bring Jamestown history to life. Students can stand at the ropes around the open archaeological excavations and share in the very moment of discovery. Or you can bring our activities into your classroom to give students practice in research and scientific investigation. And students doing research papers can find details here about the historical figures of Jamestown that other websites don’t include. Start your own rediscovery now!
