Living at Jamestown Settlement, Williamsburg, Virginia

The buildings at Jamestown Settlement portray life as it was for the settlers between 1610 and 1614.  The top photo shows a room with a work area while the lower shows what happens when you leave the doors open for relief from the heat of a Virginia summer.  The chicken seemed quite comfortable in the room, which was just large enough for the two beds.

When I was in Jamestown, which was about 40 years ago, I remember that there were foundations of the original houses, but I do not remember any buildings. Perhaps these are reconstructions.

Looks like beautiful craftsmanship all around. It must have been a very different life back then.
