Jamestown Settlement

Some old ruins of the homes built near the fort.
This is a small model showing Fort James. Note the triangular sharp of the fort.
The famous Pocahontas, favorite daughter of chief Powhatan. Captain John Smith claimed she had saved his life twice during the colony's 1st year.
This is the site of the landing of the 1st settlers in 1607, May 13. These notes were found:
"The 13th day (of May 1607) we came to our seating place....where our ship doe lie so neere that they are moored to the trees in 6 faltons of water. The 14 day we landed our men" ..... George Percy.
The first church at the fort.
