Hidden in Plain Sight: The Bunker Tour at the Greenbrier
Come along as we return to Jamestown. This trip will take us to see "Historic Jamestowne". The Association for the Preservation of the Virginia Antiquities (now Preservation Virginia) acquired 22.5 acres on Jamestown Island in 1893 to protect the site of America's birthplace. In 1994 the VPVA began an archaeological project called Jamestown Rediscovery to find the remains of the original James Fort. Twenty years of exploration have established the location of the fort and principal buildings and recovered over 1.5 million artifacts. We will have a private guided tour of the project that has rewritten our understanding of early settler's daily life, purpose and struggle to establish their place in this new land. After the tour, you may enjoy lunch in the Café at the site. Following lunch there will be time to explore on your own, to view the ongoing archaeological sites, or visit the museum. Please wear comfortable clothing and walking shoes. It is highly recommended that you bring insect repellant as we will be on an island surrounded by water and marshes.
