    The Newsletter of the Lynchburg Museum System


    Vol. 9, No. 2 Summer 2014

    Vol. 9, No.1 Winter 2014

    Join David Givens as he discusses Jamestown's fascinating archaeology!

    Jamestown Rediscovery’s Senior Archaeologist David Givens will provide insight into the fascinating finds in Jamestown Fort with the program: Surprises From the Soil: Twenty Years of Archaeological Research at Jamestown. For many years, historians believed that the site of the 1607 fort was under the waters of the James River.  In 1994, Archaeologist Bill Kelso discovered that much of the fort remained and over the last 20 years, a million plus artifacts have been discovered. 
    The fort represents the birthplace of English America but Indian attacks, typhoid fever, and starvation almost ended the colony on several occasions. See the fascinating finds that illuminate the lives of these early settlers, and in some cases, their deaths.
    Visitors are invited to tour the exhibit: Experience The James: Lynchburg’s Pathway to the World, which showcases the art, history, culture, natural resources, and historic photographs of “America’s Founding River.”  David Given’s program will start at 4 p.m. with refreshments following.
