Tour: "In the Trenches"

In the Trenches Tours are conducted at 10:00 am, typically 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.

Tickets must be purchased online in advance or at the Visitor Center by 9:30 a.m. on the day of the tour. An email confirmation will be sent after the online tour purchase is made. Tickets will NOT be mailed to participants.

Tour participants should dress according to weather predictions. Reservations and tickets are valid only on the date specified. There will be no refunds unless the tour is canceled by Preservation Virginia.

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

If you wish to purchase $26 tour tickets available for participating children (15 and under), please call (757) 856-1250 between 9 am - 4:30 pm.

For information call 757-229-4997, ext. 100.
