On May 14, 1607, 104 English settlers landed on Jamestown island, Virginia to establish a colony for the Virginia Company. Thought to be lost to history forever under the James River, the original fort was rediscovered in 1994 by archaeologist William Kelso. In this program, we join Mr. Kelso for an In the Trenches tour as he explains how he unearthed the original fort. And we visit Bly Straube in the archaeology lab where more than 1.5 million artifacts are studied to help reveal what life was like inside Jamestown fort over 400 years ago.

After the tours, William Kelso and Bly Straube take viewer questions. close
