Guests receive the royal treatment during the program, "The Queen's Tour and Tea," at 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 9 at Historic Jamestowne. Senior archaeological curator Bly Straube gives guests the same tour that she gave Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II at the Nathalie P. and Alan M. Voorhees Archaearium during Her Majesty's visit to Virginia in 2007.

During "The Queen's Tour," guests get an intimate look at the archaeological displays at the museum and hear the unique stories behind some of Straube's favorite artifacts. Straube has been with the Jamestown Rediscovery project from its beginning in 1994 and is an internationally recognized expert in 17th-century material culture.

Before the tour begins, guests enjoy innovative tea delicacies prepared by Carrot Tree Kitchens and paired with Harney & Sons gourmet teas at the Dale House Café.

Admission is $32 for adults, youth and children.

For tickets, call 1-800-HISTORY. For information, call (757) 229-4997 or visit www.historicjamestowne.org

This program is presented by Historic Jamestowne and the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation.

Historic Jamestowne is jointly administered by the National Park Service and The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation (on behalf of Preservation Virginia) and preserves the original site of the first permanent English settlement in the New World.
