The Nathalie P. and Alan M. Voorhees Archaearium and its exhibits tell the story of Jamestown as seen through the eyes of the people who lived there and the artifacts they left behind. The word “Archaearium” was created to describe this unique facility that displays the archaeological findings at Jamestown, and has been given the meaning of “a place of beginnings.”
In this book, Jamestown Rediscovery‘s former curator Beverly A. Straube takes readers through one of the world’s few museums dedicated to archaeology. See some of the most spectacular artifacts from Jamestown’s founding in 1607 through 1699, when the capital of Virginia was moved to Williamsburg.
