Summary
In 1607, 105 Englishmen crowded onto three ships to cross the Atlantic and make a new life for themselves in North America. They built a fort at Jamestown and established trade with the indigenous people, but things quickly turned bad: the Native Americans became hostile, the land proved unforgiving, and disease broke out. How did Jamestown, long thought to be a near-failure due to the colonists' apparent incompetence, manage to survive to become the first permanent English settlement? This program spotlights an archaeological dig that is yielding evidence every day of the story of Jamestown's turbulent first years, including a 400-year-old well and a swamp filled with 1,000-year-old trees. Visits to a firing range, a sculptor's studio, and a forensics lab shed additional light on Jamestown's past
