We were told that the original site was boring....NOT SO! We thoroughly enjoyed the site of the original James Fort. At this time, April 2014, excavation and archeological work is ongoing. The results of that work can be seen in the Archaearium (Archeology Museum). Extremely well laid out and instructive. We like that the artifacts were shown and there were life size representations of exactly where piece you are looking at belongs in the larger scheme of armour, period clothing, part of building. The map made the area look huge, but it was an easy walk and there were guides everywhere to assist and answer questions. Don't miss the glass blowing area!
Thanks especially to Cindy,aka Lucinda, at the JamestownVisitors Center for making us welcome and advising what to see and giving realistic time frames.
We will be returning for a second day to the Jamestown Settlement Reenactment Area.
