Jamestown Archaeology

Name:Jamestown Archaeology

Brief Description of the Site:
The Association for the Preservation of Virginia Antiquities has developed this site, called Jamestown Rediscovery. You are invited to visit as an archeologist and discover the most recent findings related to the remains of 1607-1698 Jamestown. Two new interactive archaeology modules have been designed for middle school students and older to allow you to discover how archaeology is done at the site.

How to use the site:
Historical and archeological information geared to the middle school student (and above) provide an interesting perspective on what we continue to learn today about the colony of Jamestown, Virginia. Interactive exhibition links, information for potential visitors, resources for further research, and popular publications offer students and educators the opportunity to conduct an in-depth study of this period in American history. Those with questions about the site or related content can contact the Jamestown Rediscovery Staff under the "Contact Us" link. For students of American history, this is a site worth visiting for both the perspective presented and the resources provided.
