history and archaeology tours

Walking tours provide insight into 17th-century Jamestown and the research conducted by the Jamestown Rediscovery team. Offerings include an introduction to Jamestown, an overview of the archaeology of James Fort, a trip back in time with a living history interpreter, and in-depth discussions of particular aspects of Jamestown’s history. Check the Visit Guide to see what tours are available this week. All tours begin at the Tercentennial Monument.

Archaeology in Action

Our archaeology team is hard at work uncovering new information about early Jamestown. Check out excavations in progress outside the fort, near the East Bulwark. Visitors are welcome to observe and to ask questions, but we ask that you please respect the safety ropes. The field team is generally excavating Monday through Friday, weather permitting.
