Summary
"Follow the drama as three small ships from England reach the New World in the spring of 1607 with 104 souls on board. At the edge of a powerful Indian confederacy, they settle in Jamestown and pave the way for the birth of our nation.

Why not dig a well? Now, new archaeological evidence unearthed at Jamestown gives us the bigger picture ... "--BIP
Summary
An examination of what happened at the Jamestown settlement presents a detailed review of the new archaeological evidence to profile the housing, food, clothing, tools, and causes of death of the early settlers
