The Interactive Dig at Jamestown Rediscovery
For students and dig volunteer wannabees, the Jamestown Rediscovery Project offers a website chalk-full of educational stuff, including an interactive dig learning experience that gives you a very basic taste for the methodology behind how the Project archaeologists carry out their ongoing work at the famous Jamestown site on Jamestown Island, Virginia. Jamestown was the site of the first permanent English colony on the American continent, and was arguably the beginning of what became the United States. Current excavations at the site are focusing on uncovering the remains of the original 1607 James Fort and surrounding settlement. If you are interested, go to the website for an enjoyable educational opportunity.
