The Cook's Quarters on the Susan Constant, Jamestown Settlement, Williamsburg, Virginia













































































Cooking aboard a wooden ship creates obvious issues.  The cook's quarters on the Susan Constant are claustrobically small and include the brick oven to contain the fireon which he cooked.  The Susan Constant was the flagship of the trio that brought the settlers to Jamestown in 1607.  Replicas of the Susan Constant, Godspeed and Discovery can be explored at Jamestown Settlement and are among our favorite destinations in the area.

Heavens, imagine the heat of sleeping in those quarters! And for weeks at a time too, it must of been quite something!
