In the Trenches Tour
Tuesday, June 3 2014 at 10:00 AM
In the Trenches Tours are conducted at 10:00 am on the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays, April through October.

Join a small inside and up-close group tour of the Lost 1607 James Fort led by Dr. William Kelso, Director of the Jamestown Rediscovery Archaeological Project since 1994. Your reserved place in this special group allows you to come under the ropes to walk the surface of the ground once trod by Captain John Smith, Pocahontas and Queen Elizabeth II -- now the very soil being dug by Historic Jamestowne archaeologists. You share the once in a lifetime "moment of discovery" as a part of America's birthplace sees the first light of day in over 400 years.

The price is $40, which includes a 7-Day Admission Ticket to Historic Jamestowne and Yorktown Battlefield.

“done about the fifth of April"
Saturday, June 21 2014
10:30 a.m., 1:00 p.m., and 3:00 p.m.
Join Martha Sizemore, housekeeper to Rev. Alexander Whitaker, as she shares her thoughts on the recent marriage of John Rolfe to Pocahontas. It has been a year since Captain Samuel Argall lured Pocahontas onto his boat and brought her to Jamestown. As a ward of the colony, Reverend Whitaker took an interest in Pocahontas's spirituality, ministering to and eventually baptizing her. Martha watched as Pocahontas slowly grew more accepting of English ways, wearing English clothes, taking the English name "Rebecca" and then marrying the widower John Rolfe. Martha will share many of the conversations she has overheard.

This event is part of a series of public programs highlighting the World of Pocahontas, a special year-long commemoration of the 400th anniversary of the marriage of Pocahontas to Englishman John Rolfe. This program is generously supported by James City County (VA).
