Holy Ground: Archaeology, Religion, and Four Early Jamestown Leaders Lost and Found
In 2010, Jamestown archaeologists discovered the site of the earliest known Protestant church in North America. Four graves and a mysterious silver box were found hidden within the Church chancel. Jamestown Rediscovery’s historical archaeologist Dr. William Kelso, the Smithsonian’s forensic anthropologist Dr. Douglas Owsley, and the Jamestown Rediscovery Foundation President and historian Dr. James Horn, will discuss the archaeological context, the identity of these burials and the significance of this world class discovery.
Location: Historic Jamestowne Visitor Center Theater
Tickets: $10 each
A Historic Jamestowne admission ticket is not required to attend the lecture. However admission tickets on April 21 will be half-price, so visiting the site will only cost $7 for adults. Should you wish to take advantage of the reduced admission fee to see the James Fort site, including the 1608 Church, as well as the Archaearium archaeology museum prior to the lecture, please plan to arrive early and stop by the Visitor Center Ticket desk to purchase your admission.
