We spent the afternoon visiting the site of the original Jamestown settlement. We joined 2 tours, one a general history and the second an archeology tour. If you go, we highly recommend the archeology tour.
The only somewhat original bit of the settlement is the church tower, which was built in 1639. Digging continues on a daily basis, with up to 2 million artifacts having been found to date.
There is a reconstruction located in the Living History museum which we did not visit. We were more interested in the true site.
Well worth the visit if you are in the area.
