The Archaearium Archaeology Museum at Historic Jamestowne reveals how historians learn what took place in the early days of America even though no written sources about the early colonies survive. Bits and pieces of tools, dishes, personal adornments and building materials found by digging at the site hold the secrets of the life in the Jamestown settlement from 1607 to 1624. The artifacts provide clues to the everyday lives and experiences of the people who lived there. Tours demonstrate how the artifacts were found and how they shed light on life at James Fort or during the Starving Time.
