Description: Forensic science has uncovered a wealth of information about the settlers at Jamestown. Learn about the multidisciplinary research that is making new discoveries at America’s birthplace. The original site of James Fort is not just a landmark of American history. It also offers a wealth of opportunities for the principles of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) because archaeologists use those skills to bring Jamestown history to life. This program includes admission to both the original site of James Fort and the Archaearium museum that features forensic recreations of the faces of some of those early settlers.
