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.
Excavations at Jamestown Island inside James Fort revealed a number of graves under the remnants of building constructed in 1611. The settlers were fearful of the Virginia Indians and, in the early years, were directed to hide the sick and bury their dead inside the fort to conceal how many or few of them were there. Of the original 104 who arrived in 1607 only 38 survived. The second photo is a list of some of the recorded deaths. In the background, tarps cover ongoing excavations.
