Welcome to an almost daily peek at our beautiful Williamsburg, Virginia which includes the "Historic Triangle" consisting of Colonial Williamsburg -the world’s largest living history museum- Yorktown and Jamestown.
When the settlers came to Jamestown for the Virginia Company of London in 1607, among the items they brought with them were various pieces of armor. Given the lack of guns and cannon among the indians, these were considered ample protection. At Jamestown Settlement, visitors are free to try on the armor. On a very hot or very cold day, the metal helmet is even more uncomfortable than ususal.
