Jamestowne histórico

Jamestown foi o primeiro assentamento inglês nos Estados Unidos, começando como James Fort em 1607 e se tornando uma das primeiras colônias de maior sucesso. Foi aqui que os ingleses interagiram pela primeira vez com os nativos americanos locais da Virgínia, bem como com o primeiro local de africanos e a primeira escravidão conhecida na América do Norte. Hoje é um parque nacional e parte da Preservation Virginia. O local busca preservar a história e a cultura das três culturas que aqui primeiro coexistiram.

Os arqueólogos ainda estão descobrindo artefatos históricos do local do Forte James, e os visitantes da área podem ver a coleção crescente de mais de 1.000 artefatos no Archaearium. É também o local onde Pocahontas se casou e morou com o inglês John Rolfe.

O centro de visitantes de Jamestowne também exibe exposições da história da área e um pequeno teatro. Talvez a parte mais fascinante da visita ao local histórico sejam as estruturas remanescentes da época, incluindo uma torre de igreja de tijolos do século 17.

The basics

Start at the visitor center with a short film and exhibits on the history of Jamestown. Join a ranger- or archaeologist-led guided tour of the settlement, and see ruins such as the 17th-century tower of a brick church or the remains of furnaces used by early settlers for glassmaking. In the summer, costumed interpreters also lead living history tours. View thousands of artifacts at the Archaearium archaeology museum, including the largest collection of colonial-period American Indian artifacts in Virginia. There’s also a 5-mile (8-kilometer) driving tour with interpretive waysides and views around the island.

National Park Pass holders receive discounted entry to the site. Week-long combo tickets are available, which include entry to a number of historic sites nearby, such as Yorktown Battlefield, Jamestown Settlement, the American Revolution Museum, and Colonial Williamsburg.
