Jamestown update Glimpse into lifestyles
Bolstered by the students of the Jamestown Rediscovery summer field school, archaeologists opened up three new excavation squares inside James Fort this past week, revealing a rich new vein of artifacts that includes hundreds of brick fragments from what appears to be an early 17th-century structure. Several recent finds from the northeast corner of the stronghold also may provide new clues about the pioneering settlement as a result of follow-up work by curators and conservators in the project's lab.
