Every day at Historic Jamestowne, exciting new archaeological digs are underway. In collaboration with the National Park Service, Jamestown Rediscovery archaeologists are exploring the home site of William Pierce, whose servant Angela was one of the first Africans to arrive in England’s North American colonies. Visitors witness this important investigation first hand and see how items dug up from the past provide evidence of the lives of the earliest English settlers and the first Africans brought to our shores.
