St. Mary’s City, MD  – 7:00 p.m., Thursday, October 24  Twenty years of excavation on the site of James Fort, established by the English in 1607, have resulted in over 2 million finds. Many of these artifacts are surprising for their contexts and are enabling new interpretations of life in the early settlement. This presentation by Dr. Beverly Straube, who has served as the senior archaeological curator since the beginning of the Jamestown Rediscovery Project, will discuss some of the highlights of these findings. The lecture is free and open to the public.
