New Construction at Jamestown Fort, Jamestown Settlement, Williamsburg, Virginia

As part of its presentation of life between 1610 and 1614,  Jamestown Settlement is working on this large building in the fort, complete with a thatched roof. While the scaffolding may not be 17th century, the finished project will bring the past to life.

You are correct that they undoubtedly did not have scaffolding like that in the 17th Century, but they did not have OSHA regulations that required it.

There's always OSHA to contend with. I wonder who oversaw job safety back in the day?
