The author describes his archeological excavation of a seventeenth-century English settlement in Virginia and his discovery of evidence of the early colonial way of life.
“Martin’s Hundred provides a lively narrative of modern ingenuity. We follow a sleuth and his expert staff through all the false starts and shrewd hunches of a thrilling ‘find.’ We discover along the way that archaeology today requires the cooperation of an international community of scientists. And ultimately, we augment our understanding of early American agriculture, early American warfare, and the tragic initial contact between Europeans and Italians in colonial times.” -Michael Kammen, author of People of Paradox
